Although our weather has been mild compared to our farming friends to the north,
we are still dealing with extremely cold temperatures that bring added stress to normal
This new baby was delivered without complication in the pasture but
we decided to provide a little extra help in warming up.
Our procedure for warming them includes a short time under a heat lamp, providing a
warm spot in the barn and the usual feeding of warm colostrum.
Tomorrow he will be moved to his individual hutch.
You can see he's quite comfortable.
I'm thankful for the ways we can provide care for our
animals during extreme weather and that we are
one day closer to spring!
