This morning we picked up our new yearling doe Echo. We put her in the little pen in the shed that is adjacent to the main living quarters of the does and kids. There is a small door for the kids to come and go through which allows them to go over there for a little time away from the does; it is also where they sleep these days. We thought that would be a good way for Echo to get acquainted with Daisy, Vinca, and Chicky. Apparently she didn't agree as it didn't take long before she managed to crawl/wiggle through that little kid door and join the main crowd.
|Echo on the left, Vinca to the right. Check out the body language on Vinca! She doesn't need to head-butt Echo to let her know who the herd-queen is! Looking at this photo, seems like Echo is a pretty good name too!|

|And, just because she's cute, I'm throwing in a picture of Lily. Although she is for sale, she won't be at the garage sale!|
