Rainy Days & Baby Buns

We've had a rainy few days lately, which has been really nice...we needed rain!

The ducks all have had fun playing in the rain and the puddles it's created. They sure are funny to watch!

Quadra's babies are now 3 weeks old and doing great. They are ADORABLE, fat little squishy munchkins! She has 1 buck and 1 doe. Aren't smoke pearls beautiful?!

I have an on-going saga with my red buck, William. He is S-L-O-W-L-Y maturing, but he is SO tiny. He's just 4.4 lbs at 8 months old and has absolutely no interest in breeding, which is very discouraging. Here is he next to my 3 1/2 month old junior, Goldie. She's just an average size ML junior...he is just a .... shrimp, LOL!

I also have some really sad news. I had to put down one of my red does, Sunrise. She was the nicer as far as body type goes of the two does. So, that is a bummer. She went off feed the end of last week and suddenly came down with wry neck. I started treating her as soon as I noticed her head tilt and I had to put her down less than 48 hours later. It progressed so fast, she was rolling within 1 1/2 days. It was by far the most aggressive wry neck I have ever seen. Very sad :(.

On a better note, here are a couple's a couple recent pictures of my other red doe, Vixie. She is maturing nicely and finally starting to fill in some! Hopefully we'll have red babies soon.....

I'm sorry to hear about your red doe! :( I hope Vixie gives you some beautiful red babies later.
