Lots of Snow & Lots of Babies

We knew with the snow storm someone in the barn would choose to have their babies today. Annabelle, as always, popped out a set of triplets ...three does, no less! While they were all small, one in particular was very small. With the temperature being in the teens and Annabelle preoccupied with the two larger kids, we made the decision to pull the small doe inside and make her a bottle baby for now. The weatherman is forecasting bitter cold for the next two nights and then we should have some warmer temperatures and less worries.
