    IT is mighty cold here in michigan, but I am glad that you got the little fella. I am expecting babies soon too. Ihace a stack of towels, that I will put in the dryer, and then on the babis all nice and warm. it is so cold here, right now, that it is just terrible.
    glad to hear your little one is doing fine.

    Yeah, I'm anticipating kidding now that the weather has hit the single digits. Of course, I've been thoroughly convinced she was going into labor for the last 7 weeks. That's the last time I ever let a buck run with the does! Good thing we built a separate pasture since then. What a frustration! Today, though her tail was kind of high and the ligament was pretty much non existent. I've been getting hourly updates from my son and as soon as I hear something out of the ordinary ... or in an hour and a half ... I'm going home!

    Congratulations! I'm SO jealous of all of you having babies. It has been so long since I have had babies around here. I CAN'T WAIT!!!! :p Poor little baby ...sorry about his little ears. Hope they are ok.
