Vervain's Debut

On Sunday, the 22nd, Earth Day, right after breakfast, Violet gave birth to a single kid. The baby was huge, as big as her week-old cousins. Like all the rest, she was on her feet within ten minutes. We waited, but no twin came. When we peeked under her tail, we high-fived: another doeling! Her name is Vervain. Now she is three days old, and in a break between dramatic rain and (sigh) snow showers today, she joined her herd outside for the first time.

Vervain was timid for a few minutes, but she was soon ready to explore.

Violet really didn't have too much to worry about. Vervain is a bit unsteady on her feet, but she's almost as big as the other little ones.

For some reason, morning chores take like four times as long as they used to. Wonder why that is.
