You just know its going to be a great day, when you open the barn door and hear the cute cry of a newborn. One of our boer does, a first freshener affectionately named Eight presented her first doeling. Her fur was dry and fluffed up. I gave Eight grain, and picked up the little bundle of fluff. My guess is that she weighs about 5 lbs. Immediately upon setting her down, she ran over and nursed from her Momma. Yes, she gets it!
