A Little Slow

The top picture is of a little buck kid born Tuesday night just before dark. He seemed well but was not very enthusiastic about nursing so had to be coaxed. He managed to get a little before we finally went to bed but we didn't know how we'd find him come Wednesday morning. He was still alive in the morning & his little belly was not empty but he sure wanted to spend a lot of time napping compared to our other kids & lambs. We continued to watch him & mama was very patient with him, standing over him as he napped most of the day away. This morning he was still not the perkiest little guy but I thought some nice sunshine should help so evicted them both from the stable. He is nursing more aggressively now so we're hoping for the best.
