Olivia and Ozzie
It is hard to take pictures of the sweet one's because they move so quickly but here is Ozzie (with the dark markings) and Olivia with that sweet angel face. I moved them to a different pen because after lossing Oliver they would spend their time wondering around the pen calling for him. The change of location seems to have helped and I do take them out to play with the other babies twice a day. The problem is Esmerelda is not wanting to feed them so I have to go in every three hours, grab her by the horns and hold her while they nurse. Well worth the work for those sweet babies but I must admit Esmerelda has gotten on my last nerve. Each time I grab her my ribs that she fractured from last year screams out and I have to count to 100 so I will not just end it all with her. Then I get a grip on the fact that I do this so those babies will have a chance - LOOK at those sweet faces....
Ozzy is a real little billy - he snorts, paws the ground and let's out those little boy sounds whenever he thinks he needs to be a big boy. However, Olivia runs the pen. She puts Ozzy in his place when he gets too big for his britches. Olivia also is in charge of all the other babies - if she says move they move. She will take her place in the first line of head girls - she has even gotten Chief to listen to her. He loves when she naps with him - curled up around his big furry paws - safe and sound - friendship growing while they dream of spring grasses and warm nights.
