    Maybe Rudi likes being "King of the Castle" atop the muck pile? :) Doesn't matter, because he and Dove are adorable in their pictures.

    Sorry been a little distracted with a brazen fox stalking babies AND that's when I am with them... Thankfully adult reindeer chasing off if she gets too close. Luckily babies grow fast but as they age they also venture further away from their mothers....
    I haven't taken individual photos but all 6 here so I will put tags on each photo.

    "Sometimes you just have to provide your own sunshade (Pippi). Pic 1
    Other pics just random baby shots of all 6.

    Love Pippi's sunshade!:inlove: Great shots of the babies! Hope the fox problem goes away soon. It is concerning that your presence doesn't frighten the fox; that seems to indicate desperation.

    Do as Luna Does.
    Wear a face mask when in close proximity of others. [​IMG]

    Mind you we still have to work on social distancing!

    (The sun is out here in UK, so Luna has a sun shield, lets hope she keeps it on)

    8) I think Luna is waiting for you to turn your back, so she can take that contraption off... :) :inlove:

    It almost looks like she's wearing a beekeeper's hat on her face. :) So cute!

    Never easy to get all babies in the same photo. But here are all 6, not a great photo BUT all in same one!

    Hope in the foreground, background (l to r) Pippi, Bruin, Dove, Rudi and Tommor.

    Hope I thought may be on the eventual "for sale" list but not too sure now as she is the only one that actually seems to love cuddles and strokes. :)... We'll see. x Pippi I really want to keep as her markings are wonderful but she isn't bonding as well as Hope.

    And, no I can't keep them all even though I wish I could, :)

    :inlove: Beautiful babies. There are only 3 girls, plenty of room for all. :music:
    Are you keeping any of the stinky (but adorable) boys? :)

    No Boys to be kept long term, unless castrated. ;) and to be honest, in these scary times I think I will have to find homes, if I can, for all girls as Christmas bookings are zero and by end of May we usually have all weekends booked and paid for.
    Seriously scary for us all but I will need to find homes for many, if I can, in order to feed the remaining .herd next year..:(
    Scary, scary, times.. stay safe and well all. xx

    How I wish I lived on a farm with paddocks to spare. I would certainly love to buy a couple of your babies:p

    Baby Hope found in the wrong paddock, luckily she didn't seem stressed at all but the rest of her herd were concerned.
    Hope ISN'T related to Mischa surprisingly. Mischa was a Houdini, Limbo Dancer as a baby, who regularly rolled under gates to visit other reindeer - she's way too fat now!:)
    Maybe Mischa gave her tips for rolling under a gate.

    The herd really does not look happy with that little one one the wrong side of the fence! Hope better stay with the herd that will protect her from "Mr Fox"!!! Thanks for the picture!:inlove:

    For anyone who wants a Pookie (cat) update, she has found a wonderful hiding place. I would never have found her unless I had seen her go in. This water trough stand is the only one with a hollow centre (of 6), so a brilliant place to hide. I bet she wants a bed put in there. Just called her name to get her to peep out.
    This cat has acres of fun, no toys required, she makes her own fun. [​IMG]:)

    Omg Karen, your Pookie is the cutest cat ever! I know you must be happy that she picked your farm to live at and do her mousing business! :) Enjoy her cuteness and thanks for making me smile as there is not a lot to smile about lately!;)

    TBH I am beginning to think Pookie hasn't caught a single mouse! As I have seen "Black Cat" deliver mice in the places I was crediting Pookie with them.. Black cat has also presented me with white baby bunnies.. I am not sure Pookie is a Hunter, just a happy fur ball :(

    Not just a happy fur ball Karen. :) Pookie has the Happy Hubby Tummy Tickle cred in her favor (plus Photo cute). :inlove:

    Pookie probably thinks why do all the work myself catching mice when I have "Black Cat" to do all the work for me. But I can still get the credit;). Love the pictures of her:inlove:
