Granite’s kids

Granite and Ada were due on Tuesday. Wednesday morning Granite wasn’t real thrilled about eating breakfast and was looking pretty hollow and as though kidding would happen Wednesday. She pretty much stayed with the herd much of the day even following them out to the woods where new green grass is springing up.

I went out to the pasture at 1 PM to call the girls in. They all came a runnin’ like usual, Granite lagging behind. About 2:30 I went to check again but instead of having to call them in, I could see Granite had either tried to get back to the barn or separated herself from the herd (which is completely normal) and kidded in the pasture in a little valley. A buck and a doe, sired by Storm.

Boy is this buck LOUD and I think he will stay on as a new junior herdsire. And a pretty mahogany doe kid with some roaning, both cute as can be =).
