Baby Kalahari Kids

There’s a lot of excitement on the farm with the birth of our first Kalahari kid this week. 🙂

She’s a preemie, so tiny it’s hard to know how she even made it, but she did!

And how we love her. 🙂

There was a whole lot of cuddling going on that winter morning as we helped keep her warm while the new mother got used to her and allowed her to nurse and snuggle.

She’s a little luv – gentle and sweet. Falling asleep seconds after she snuggles in.

Each day she gets stronger. She’s not so wobbly now and she’s nursing like a trooper.

The other mothers are due any day now and their bellies look fit to burst!

Each morning Bear rushes down to their pen to make sure everyone’s OK and to see if any babies were born in the night.

I think this might be one of the best times of the year. 🙂

Thank you for your patience in waiting for new posts. I was very ill the past while but I’m doing better and better each day and hope to be posting regularly again. 🙂

I’d love to hear what your favorite part of this season is!
