Bottle Babies

Four times a day I fill four bottles with goats milk and trek over to the quonset.  I have some bottle babies over there.  There are two baby pigs, now three weeks old.  They were too small to stay with mom so I took them away to try and keep them alive.  So far so good, they are eating well and growing.  Not very cuddly though, they hate to be picked up, and will scream if you try to.  However, if you have a bottle in your hand, they are your best friend.  Also, I have two lambs on bottles as well.  One was a small triplet and the other was abandoned by it's yearling mother.  After fighting with her for a week I gave up.  Hopefully next year she'll be a better mom, or she's down the road!
