Looks who's coming to dinner (and breakfast and everything in between)

A handsome little 3 week old Nubian buck. He met the MIL (Ethel) today and she approves - we'll have the little guy in a week or two. He is a bottle boy - currently being fed his mama's milk but by bottle (she rejected him). Hope he will be contented here - we don't have any kids this year and he won't be doing buck duty for a good long while yet! Looking forward to seeing how this new addition to the herd works - hope it isn't too stressful for him or for us. New life on Buhlaland - always interesting. We're working on a name for him - we already have a Nubie in our herd so that is out.

Awww, he's PRECIOUS! He looks like a "Buster" to me! I love bottle-feeding... we had to do one of our lambs that way. It was so fun!
