Brindle and Bode

27 Apr

If you’ve been hanging out here since the kids were born last month, you probably remember that Penny was having a hard time feeding both of her kids.  Brindle was doing well, but Bode was starving.  We tubed him and I squirted milk down his throat, and he was finally doing better.

Well, I think he’s not even skinny now.

He certainly acts like he’s feeling good.

You can still tell he’s smaller than his sister.  It was obvious when I was trying to get a “tail count” shot for next year.

I will say, though, he’s doing pretty darn good.  That warms my heart.

      It’s part of being a farmer. We do what we can. It makes us happy when we are successful.

    How precious! So glad he’s doing well!

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 7:56 pm #

      Me too. It’s quite a relief.

    The first pics remind me of mountain goat kids, white against the green.

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 7:56 pm #

      They like to pretend to be mountain goats. 🙂

    I’m so glad to hear that Bode is doing well, Teresa. He certainly looks content!

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 7:57 pm #

      He’s a happy little guy. He enjoys all the grass growing in pasture now.

      It’s always nice when the work pays off.

    Yaayyy… So glad Bode is doing well! You are certainly in my prayers.

    Love the rear end view of the two of them.

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 7:58 pm #

      I love those little flag tails! They always make me smile.

      Thanks, Eileen. You too!

    Love seeing these pics! Such a sweet life you share and all the hard work looks like it pays off with these precious kids! Have a great weekend!

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 8:00 pm #

      It is hard work, but I do love it. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It’s nice when the work pays off.

    I am so glad he is doing better!! He looks great, even if he is smaller than his sister!

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 8:01 pm #

      He is doing well. I’m sure he’ll continue to grow and fill out and maybe even pass his sister in size.

  13. Pondside April 28, 2016 at 9:58 am #

    He looks pretty frisky! You’ve given him a good start.

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 8:01 pm #

      He is. He loves racing around out there.

  14. Alica April 28, 2016 at 11:43 am #

    Good to hear! Way to go Bode (and Teresa!) !

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 8:01 pm #

      He’s a fighter! He finally started fighting to get in there and nurse with his sister.

  15. Jim April 28, 2016 at 6:02 pm #

    Seems Bode is doing well, Teresa. You did good getting him up and running in his new world.

    • Teresa April 28, 2016 at 8:03 pm #

      He just needed a little help. His mom is doing it all now.

  16. pattisj April 28, 2016 at 10:45 pm #

    That is good news!

  17. Betty April 29, 2016 at 9:19 am #

    Oh good! I’m glad he’s doing better. You are really dedicated to your animals.

    • Teresa April 29, 2016 at 9:28 am #

      I try to be. It seems like there’s always something trying to kill them though.

  18. Abrianna May 1, 2016 at 6:35 pm #

    I am glad he is doing well. Maybe he will just be little…but makes it hard to put him in with buks as he gets older.
