On my way to town the other day, a small herd of elk ran in front of me on the county road!

Barn cleaning day

Mama and her babies

This little baby got to cold, so brought her in to warm her up.


These triplets were born right after the ones above.  This mama had very small babies.  One of them would not eat, or move.  He weighed less than a pound.  We rushed it into the house at 12 A.M. and used a hair dryer for several hours to warm him up and dry him off.  His first week was touch and go, but is a fighter, now 2 weeks old, doing very well and still smaller than any newborn that comes!

This is the little guy when he finally started acting like he was going to make it.  Our kids named him Bob.  Bob now thinks he is a human, or a cat or a dog, not sure what but definitely not a sheep!  (will need to do an updated picture- looks way better now!:))
