All mothers need breaks from their kids and our does are no exception. So once a day the kids get swaddled up on Meg's coat and brought up to the house to socialize with each other, Billy the cat, and take naps underneath the wood cookstove which is always warm.
This is the youngest of the triplets--Pip--who tried to come out folded with one front leg and one hindleg presenting. Eventually we sorted him out and he arrived. A little time in the house to get over the tough arrival and he is as good as his golden color.
These are Pip's siblings--Trip is the tri-colored buckling on the left fighting with his red and white sister Temple. They are out of Dancing Angels Tempera and sired by Babel Brook Acres Andante.
This is Halo--Andante X Dancing Angels Rockette. She has lovely blue eyes to match her wonderful disposition. She and her sister Adele were born on Valentine's day in the wee hours of the morning.
This is Adele doing what she does best--finding ways to get into trouble. We think the devilish look to her one eye may be a contributing factor.
This is Abigail out of Avian Acres Selene and sired by Dancing Angels Rockstar(Promisedland RC Obama X Dancing Angels Rockette). She and her brother were born in the back kennel at our wonderful local veterinarian's office after we brought Selene in for some oxytocin when her labor stalled out. She is very sweet and much prettier in person. And last but not least Abe Jr. who was born headfirst after his sister was up and looking for milk. He has blue eyes and moonspots and comes from our best lines for milk and show quality udders. We are waiting to see how he'll grow up.
