more babies.....Neige, Louie and Buuurt.........

2 days ago I had my babies down pat............everyone was feeding well finally..........
But that afternoon 2 more babies came into the yard and last night another one..............
I got some pics last night.............Indy(7 weeks)on the left and Charlotte (3 weeks) on the right
very comfortable in the Agapanthus............
Louie and Neige (French for snow) (< 1week) with Indy in the garden
We got some visitors on Sunday when the calves arrived so and they named Neige and Louie.........
Neige is a huge lump of a calf..........he is only very young but huge bone structure.........
Charlotte, Buuurt (< 2-3 days) and Bell (2 weeks)
Buuurt (think of a new calfs sound) and Louie are very alike but Buurt has some brown on the edge of his mouth
Thankfully we have some extra hands helping with them at the moment as we have 8 lambs 2 of  which we are feeding milk and one of those still can't stand up properly.......
....between feeding calves and checking dams morning and night life is busy here  morning and night.......

Catch you later

  11. Gorgeous babies, Chooky - I hope they don't like your garden TOO much. There's no end to your busyness - what's that old saying - "No rest for the wicked" - you must have been VERY naughty LOL. I hope that sometime soon you all get the chance to slow down a bit.
