April 22nd, 2009, around 5:00 am, Bell had her baby. She's bay like her mama, and came out kicking. Within a few hours she was bucking around and trying to kick the dogs. She's already attached to Hayes and will follow him around in the pen. We're calling her Bella for now.
Like it says on the sidebar, animals dig Hayes.
They come out pretty scrawny, but she is surprisingly strong.
Trey held her while Spence put iodine on her umbilical cord.
Chase was THRILLED. He's been looking out the back door saying "baby" for weeks in anticipation.
Oh, and I found out that BOTH Spence and Hayes tasted the milk last week. Way to go guys. And for our records, Bell waxed and her milk turned opaque and then had the baby within 12 hours. I think she was due on the 7th, so she was 2 weeks overdue.
