All our 2011 babies are home. After they were born on the farm, we took all the girls to our annex to raise them in small groups in quiet surroundings. Ryan and Annie bottle-fed the tiny girls as they arrived, gradually promoting them to age-appropriate milks in their separate enclosures. Now, in June, all the babies are weaned and eating grain and alfalfa. They came back to the farm in the truck, packed in there one by one, and we let them loose on grass for the first time.
