Alan and I moved Sweet Potato into the barnyard on Sunday, so she could interact with the goats, and have plenty of room to stretch her legs. She also has a new friend in the barnyard, too! Princess's baby, Leia who was born yesterday morning.
She explored the hay bale. Fascinating stuff! She's been eating her bottled milk well. By recommendation of our vet, we're giving her dextrose injections, to help keep her stable while she adjusts to being taken off of her mother's milk. She's not too hip on the injections part of her day.
You can see her little umbilical chord still hanging from her belly. Such a young thing! And you can still see the auction house sticker we haven't been able to get off her yet. It's REALLY stuck. There was a second one on her as well, but we got that one off without too much trouble. The remaining one is not so easy to remove.
It will be great fun to watch her grow up next to Princess's little Dexter calf. Who, honestly, can almost walk under the belly of Sweet Potato. There's quite a size difference. I will continue to try and get some photos of them together. Leia is still doing a lot of laying and snoozing, but soon enough they will be bouncing around enjoying each other's company.
Life on the farm is full of fun these days, wouldn't you say!?
