Quiet Country - Not Today

Good Morning!  My goodness!  I knew that the Boer kids weren't going to like being separated from mom and each other.  After all they had always been together.  I just didn't expect it to be so loud so long.  After they had had their grain for the morning, I put Bounder on a lead and headed for the buck pen.  He was fine until he realized I was leading him out of the goat pen and then he started up.  Which, of course, brought mom rushing away from the hay to check things out.  Their cries blended together for most of the trip.  Mom quieted down when she realized that she could still hear him.  The other bucks tried to play with him, but he just stood at the gate and cried all day.  Danielle, who is always ready for adventure, went to visit the other doe kids with hardly a sound.    About lunchtime, though, she was ready for a good nap with momma and began to register her complaints.  The rest of the day was somewhat loud.  Who knew that 2 little kids could make so much noise.  Poor Bounder was so hoarse he could barely make a sound when he got back to his mom. Both of them rushed to their mom and tried to nurse, but she pushed them away until she got her food.  It's nice to know that mom and I are on the same page.  But, somehow, I don't think they will be as easy to catch tomorrow.

May Yahweh bless you in this new day!
