Three Days Old   Leave a comment

Xena and I hiked over to see the new baby again this morning.  He’s much steadier on his feet, and seems a little more resigned to his new world.  Mama, however, is still pretty anxious; after all, he is her first.  She’s definitely a helicopter mother.

His fuzzy mane seems a little darker.  A pale-skinned, blue-eyed baby like this will need protection from the Bakersfield sun as it gets fiercer.  Luckily, you can buy itty-bitty fly masks which double as sunshades. 

His proud owners are looking forward to teaching him everything he needs to know.  It almost makes me with I had one . . . I said almost!
