River's Kids

CH Castle Rock Moon River 3*D kidded last week, with a buck and a doe that are both full of personality.

The doe kid is the bounciest of 2014, and also seems wise beyond her days

It is possible that she knows where all the bodies are buried...because she put them there.

Her brother, on the other hand, is a total momma's boy, who would rather be on my lap than with the other kids.


We're easing into kidding season this year...sort of.  We have had 18 kids out of six does so far, though the beginning of March will have us with our hands full with ten does due in a span of two days.

You are a braver farmer than I!

Well, it looks like we'll kid out around 26 does this year, which sounds like a lot (and it is), but quite a bit fewer than the 45 we kidded out last year. I'm still trying to savor the days before we find ourselves with a bazillion bottle babies to feed several times a day.
