May Mother

May 9, 2012

Each October we turn the buck in with the does, which then gives us kids in March.  But, every once in a while, a doe doesn’t take the first time around, or the second.  Yesterday, two full months after all the other does kidded, the last one had her baby.  After two months of watching all the others with kids and being treated as something a little other, it is evident that she thinks different about herself now, as do the other does.
