Capricious April

The first kids of 2014, a buck and a doe, were born to Juniper last Tuesday, April 8. We made a little nursery in the barn, and they are growing fast. These pictures are from their first few days.
Little Jem, Truly Outrageous, Sucking Down Milk

It's spring! It's spring! Crocuses and honeybees.
Sunday and Monday were beautiful and in the 70s. I planted seeds and got a sunburn. Then last night we got three inches of snow. It was 65° for morning chores yesterday; today it was 20° and I had to apologize to Junie for my cold hands when I milked her. I guess April really is cruel. One of these days, though, spring will come to stay.
