Here We Grow Again!


We have a girl! Shiloh kidded yesterday and gave us a beautiful little doe. Unlike Ruth, she took almost no time at all and I actually had to catch her baby because she decided that she preferred to stand up during the big event. Now we have to decide on a name for this little one and the exciting part is we get to give her our farm name!  She has a unique marking on her side that kinda looks like a dragon. What do you think?

The doe with the dragon tattoo?

She's a very strong and active 1 day old and she weighs just at 10 pounds! She may be pushing the boys around soon (just like her momma).  We are looking forward to watching how she develops and may take her to a show in June. She'd be a little young but it will be good experience for our first show.

Now the real fun begins! :)

Blessings,
Michelle
