I was up several times last night with the little girl... but she made a great turnaround, and started to pick up speed rather quickly once she had some food on board. As of her 7 pm feeding tonight, she was fighting the bottle and refusing to suck on it. Pretty feisty for a little runt, but then again she practically swandived out of her mom, so quick was her entrance into this world, and she was the first one on her feet after birth.


That (plus the scale, saying that she had gained weight) tells me that she is on the right track for now, but we will continue to closely monitor her and her siblings. Luckily her mom's udder closely resembles that of a dairy cow and seems to be up to feeding all three -- clearly, it got the memo about triplets.


The photos of the babies are compliments of Terzo. Yep, all three are white and cute as the dickens.



  1. Wow - another cute bunch! I bet in the middle of the night you are glad that spring is here and that you were not out there in the cold barn during January or February! I know it is still a pain but it is nice to have a bright thought!

  2. So glad to hear that the little one is wanting to do it all by herself! They are wicked cute!

  3. So adorable! I'd be willing to get up in the middle of the night to feed those little faces...

  4. OK Catherine, you're on for the 2 am feeding. ;o)
