The Cuteness

Cotton Hill Farm just got a lot cuter. Pansy had her kids on Friday the Thirteenth, a buckling and a doeling. Here they are like five minutes after they were born. That's the little guy taking his first steps.
Today I tried to get Pansy out into the sun for a bit with little Petunia and Billy Goat. They were all pretty cautious about leaving the shed, but they played outside for a few minutes.

All weekend, the vigil continued for Juniper. We started to think she had forgotten to have her kids, even though she was so wide she could barely walk around.

The waiting paid off, though. Yesterday after a short and simple labor, she delivered two little girls! After that, we saw the first rainbow of the year. Sometimes life is beautiful.


I can already tell she's an adventurous one; she was outside the barn when I went up in the morning. 
 Juniper's kids have pink noses and giant rabbit ears!!!
We have a short break now before Violet kids. Stay tuned for progress reports and more cuteness.
