Solitaire gave birth to a calf, Uno, who at first got kicked when he tried to drink. But after getting the baby to a dry warm place and giving the mother time, she calmed down. Jerry milked the new mom and we bottle-fed Uno. After some time together, he managed to drink and is well and energetic now.

Safe and warm.
On the day we arrived, a baby goat was born. He was really small and laying around for the first few days, but soon he joined the "bende" (the 'gang' of kids/baby goats) in their mischief. They really are very naughty and curious.
Another newborn kid.
A hen was brooding when we arrived, and soon there were 3 adorable baby chicks. Sadly one of them was taken by some bird of prey already. Better keep a close watch on your babies mother hen...

At our arrival the last goose on the farm was still sitting on her nest, and after a few days 4 goslings appeared. The mother and babies only wandered around for a few days though; they were sold soon afterwards.
