      Hello friends,

      Nowadays, we would just use the sewing machine for speed and

      Our word is OFFSPRING

      Meaning = children of human beings.
      Also referred to as decendants (keturunan) of animals.

      Normally, we do not say "a goat's child"
      We say "a goat's offspring"
