Boy Blogger and I did not get along this morning! It wouldn't let me load any photos! And what good is Animal Crackers Day with no photos!!! So finally here it is after having to go to the old editor and manually upload one photo at a time very very slowly -
I was late home yesterday so I didn't get to photos before dark, then I got to thinking about all our babies. (our neighbors horse had a baby yesterday!!) And I always think about my babies when seeing others - so I thought it might be fun to do a little "Then and Now" with a few!
So I looked back at a few baby photos and found some "grown up's" to compare them too....
First is my very first baby here - This little guy was so spoiled it wasn't even funny... and I was such a newbie I worried about EVERYTHING... He was born in December and it was pretty cold the week he was born got down in the teens! So I ran out and got him a dog coat to wear so he wouldn't get to cold. Now... I know that Mom will make sure they are warm, and don't worry so much.. LOL Here is Diego -
Then we have Irene ... Our First Spotted baby ... we purchase her Mom, Patti, already bred, so Irene was a huge bonus for us as she will later be able to be bred to Raffie as well as her Mom. Her nick name as she was growing up was "Shark"... yep, she was a nipper! But she is growing out of it now.
Josephine "Josie" or as Hubby calles her "little bitty one" - she is one of our smaller girls. All the babies have bangs when they are little. But Josie's were just too adorable for words... she always looked as if she had just had a hair cut, they were always so straight and perfect looking, and very full! We look forward to breeding her one day.. still a while off, but she is so darn cute and has tons of personality - so her babies should be fabulous!
Valentine - Our first and only standard baby donkey. He is named for a character in one of my all time favorite movies... "Valentine McKee" .. what you don't know that character? Played by Kevin Bacon? One of his best roles ever???? TREMORS.. common a classic! I love that movie! Valentine is and should be a grown up now.. I mean he was born in 2005.. but this guy is a huge Momma's boy. If he falls asleep and she moves off and he looses her, the world falls apart and everyone on the property hears him scream for her. Then if he doesn't find her he panics and runs kicks and screams more. Then Hubby has to wander off and find her and bring her back to him. I really think that she does it on purpose sometimes just to sit back and laugh at him.... Poor guy... He is one of my "boys" as well.. I just love this guy!I had to show off one baby goat.. common they are just precious! Jill isn't even a year old yet, but man she was an adorable baby. She is almost full grown now, but smaller than all the other goats. She is gorgeous, and super friendly!
Now "MY BABIES" - Libbie first - Can you believe this girl? And now a Mom herself - My stunning Blue Eyed Girl - was she a cute puppy or what? And a stunning little Toy Aussie if I do say so - And her boyfriend, my boy, Autie - Already a Dad and so young himself. My cuddle boy. One adorable puppy and now a Handsome dude.Then although she is still a puppy.. not even 5 months old yet.. I had to show Chica too.. and look at how much she looks like her Dad as a puppy! We love her to pieces even in her lanky teen stage! LOL
Hope you enjoyed my looking back at my babies... can you tell I am really ready for more? Seems like forever since we have had any babies around here LOL ... Have a Goat that is close, and a couple of Donkeys that we think are April... so just have to be calm.
Have a wonderful Saturday - and I hope that tomorrows post isn't so hard for me to get on, whew.. took me over 2 hours to get this one loaded!
