Let's start with Angie's baby, the frosty. Now a singleton, she has all the milk she wants and his huge! She's a little doe, and we gave her the name Olive!
All the babies have 3 things in common, which is a huge difference from other litters I've had recently. If they all continue to develop in the same way they are now, I couldn't go wrong keeping any one of them. So far, they all have big heads, thick bone, and great ear placement (most of them have ears that are already lopped or lopping, too!).
Now let's move on to Fern's litter of 5! First up, is Eclipse, the self chinchilla doe. She was the easiest one to name. After all, she's black, and the eclipse just happened so I thought it was fitting! Blacks are so hard to photograph, but trust me when I say she's looking good! A little long in bone and her body isn't the best, but she's a sweetie. I will not be keeping her for sure, due to her color (it's not a color that's good for breeding or continuing genetics), but if she continues in this pattern of growth, she could be a show or 4-H doe.
Also, in a couple days I will have a video posted on Youtube of the name reveal and you'll be able to meet the babies virtually through a video which is always more fun than pictures!
