Daisy had her baby!

A sweet little doeling made her appearance on March 12th, during one of our most recent snow storms.  I promised the kids that they could pick the name for Daisy’s little one, so we have named her Stormy.

We went out to do our nighttime bottle feeding, and there she was.  Daisy had already cleaned her, and she was just starting to stand up.  Within minutes, she was nursing like a champ, and Daisy was back to munching on hay.

She is half Sannen, and half Boer.  She definitely has the Boer face and ears.  I’m keeping them in the kidding pen for now, but will be introducing them to the rest of the herd soon.

We have been hit with storm after storm the past couple of weeks, so there is still a ton of snow on the ground.  The best thing for now is to keep them inside the barn.

Welcome to the herd little lady.
