Ok, I know this one is really old, as Penny is over a year now, and this was when we first got her. But-wasn't she a sweet baby, being snuggled by my lil man?
First nurse time. You can see Neena is loving on her new lil boy!
Close up. He's got his Daddy's star!
A slightly older version. He is named Ulmers Nickels Ursa, and has gone to live with Laura and Wayne Henkel of Hightimber Horses, where he will be used at stud!
This is proud mama cow, Shelly, who LOVES photos. All I had to do to find out where her calf was (I knew she'd had him!) was to bring out the camera and say "ok girl, where's that baby?" She moo'ed, and took me right to him!
And isn't he a sweetie? He kinda reminds me of a (huge) fawn, all curled up there!
A barn full of newborn baby goats! This was only from TWO mamas! (We had LOTS of triplets born last year!)
A housefull of baby goats! (I swear I didn't lay them out like that! Silly critters!!)
Miss Tabitha and her "baby", Swiper! His momma didn't want him (she's like that-she only picks one out of her multiple births to love, and strongly objects to the others. Poor Swiper. However, he actually fell into a soft spot that way. Originally destined to be dinner (for someone!) he is instead Tabitha's pet, and so therefore not up for grabs.
Newborn baby goats are soo ADORABLE!!
Newborn baby goat finds the milk bar!What could be more peaceful than a Momma pig feeding all her lil ones? (In case you haven't noticed, I LOVE nursing photos!! : ) )
A herd of new little piglets! I just LOVE the wild colours!!Mama kitty and her sweet, colourful little litter!
Tabitha and Wyatt enjoy a new little Bronze Turkey poult.
A bunch of em!! We run the turkey poults with the broiler chicks, 'cause the chicks are beneficial in teaching the turkey poults to eat and drink, and where to stay warm. There are about 250 broiler chicks, and 30 turkey poults here, if my memory serves me right. Doesn't really look like that many, though, does it?
Here are 50 of my heritage breed chicks-a mix of Auracanas, Black Australorps, Buff Orpingtons and Dark Brahmas.
This is Buster, Gabi's foster calf (whom it turns out she didn't think much of, so the kids and I ended up pail feeding him a lot of the time. The kids got pretty attached.)
Gotta love lil baby bums!! Wyatt looks soo comfy here!!
