Honey Bea has her baby, a small buckling delivered without assistance on 3 February 2015 (not January as I have on the photo) when I noticed she was not running for dinner so I went to look for her. Butterscotch was all licked clean and was dry. I knew she was pregnant but expecting her delivery date at the end of February, as the calculator to the date I saw her with my teenage buck whom got out of the Buck Paddock would fall on - it turns out he was not the Daddy.
I reckon she must have backed up to the fence and let Jumping Jack Flash at her as they were never together! I am learning the hard way that overwhelming passion in the animal kingdom, nothing will stand in the way of them being together.
As it was a bitterly cold afternoon and would be even colder at night I put them both in the horsetrailer then a couple of hours later decided the front of the Horsetrailer with be smaller with hay stored there and left them alone to bond for a couple of days
Little Butterscotch is a bleater and calls all the time whereby Honey Bea does not coo or call to him so I see him away from his Momma searching for her. Honey Bea is a good Momma and will stand still to let him drink
