I don't normally pay so much attention to how quickly they grow.
This year I decided to keep all the girls. 5 of them.
Usually, I pick one or two, sell the rest.
I can see so much...
I can see how two sisters who came out together grow differently.
The first two shots are at 5 days old. 2nd two shots of them now at 7 weeks.
At 5 days old could barely get them out of the stall.
7 weeks I can't get them back in.
I see how the two wombats are inches above the Nubians.
But only 4 days older.
I see that Sable's daughter is whiney, and capricious,
and all about her even at this age. Just like her dam.
I can see the runt is almost half the size of her sister.
And see why her sister is twice the size of her. She is a fighter.
And she likes stealing from the others.
But, if her sister calls from far away she is the first to come to her aid.
I see the runt take advantage of it, too.
The runt, I might add is just wonderfully sweet... and getting so much
attention only wants to hang with humans.
She bides her time and puts up with the others, till I go out again.
I see them play all day. I see them roam further on their own then I like.
I see the leader of the pack stick up for them when Gimpy comes to menace.
I see the dams sniff them but, meh, not interested in them.
But then give a side glance.
I see all the conformational stuff, too.
But, this is more fun.
