Brown Sugar gave birth to two adorable kids last Thursday. Meet the first babies of 2017.
That is their heated dog crate. Since these two were born during 14° temperatures, Michael cut a hole in the top of the crate and inserted a heat lamp. Michael said when he was growing up, his uncle, who carried on with the family tradition of cattle ranching, would have a pretty large stall, fully enclosed, with many heat lamps for the calves that were born during extreme cold. This is our scaled down version.
Here is the baby doeling. She has some fun markings on her side and a white tipped tail.
Here is the baby buckling. It is amazing how alike they look.
Here are momma and her babies.
In case you are wondering how Brown Sugar had such lightly colored babies, here is the dad. Surfer Joe.
Sorry it has been a week since announcing their births. Blame it on the FREEZING temperatures and the multiple watering devices we had to thaw out every morning and evening.
More babies to come. Maybe in the next 24 hours.
Enjoy your day,
