A Little Girls Paradise!

Lately on our ranch, our three daughters are in ‘baby animal paradise’!
As you know we are in the middle calving. This is when all the mother cows have their young. But to add to the mix, in December we bred our cattle-herding dog ‘Red’. A few days after Valentines Day she had seven puppies. On my farm as a child, our female dog would often have puppies. I have such fond memories of playing with the puppies and wanted my girls to experience the joy too. Then last night, in conjunction with our 4H Club, the girls got 12 baby chicks. They are heritage breeds which will grow up to be laying hens.
I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie ‘Despicable Me’ but there is a scene in it where the youngest daughter says, “It’s so fluffy, I’m gonna die!!”

That is about where my girls are at! Its like a petting zoo around here and the girls are loving it!
Here are some pictures of the various babies:
