Clean Kids

21 Mar

I’m still behind on coming up with names for kids, but I’m at least feeling up to taking pictures of them now. I think Wanda’s girl is the only kid I’ve shared a picture of once they were dried off.  She seems to be my good poser for this group of kids.

These are Ava’s kids.  The one on the left is her boy, and the one on the right is her girl.

Wanda and Ava are two that are still coming back into the barn at night to avoid the mud. I don’t know how Ava keeps her kids so clean (the black mark on the girl’s back leg below is really a black spot, not dirt).

Astra, on the other hand, tends to have muddy kids.  It’s not just because she is standing in mud feeding them.

I swear I tried getting pictures of Astra’s two girls, but every time I see them, they are nursing or racing through the mud.  Seriously, these two girls are non-stop on the go.

That’s a good thing, but I’d like them to slow down enough for me to catch them and give them some snuggles.  Blaze’s boy is also an active kid, but he does like to come and take a bit of an extra bottle since his maa is recovering from mastitis.  And look, he has a name!


We’re actually helping several kids get filled up right now.  Not surprisingly, Joani has a hard time feeding three kids.

Her little girl (standing) is quite happy to get an extra bottle every so often.

Although she just wants the food.  She’s not a snuggler.
