Samantha and I headed out a little later than usual to do chores that evening, when we made it to the barn we discovered Dorothy had kidded (only) a week early but the kid, a beautiful doeling, was under developed.
Her stiff movements and her struggle to latch onto the bottle made it so hard for me to put her down or leave her side. She was so small, and for the first two weeks of her life I barely slept, in fear that I'd wake up and she'd be dead.
But my little Tianna is a fighter and has grown to be a beautiful, sweet, loving doe.
|The day Tianna was born.|
|Tianna a week or two old.|
|Tianna a few months old.|
|Tianna several months old.|
|Me and Tianna in November.|
