Baby Bubinga is Here!

Arrow Acres proudly announces the arrival of our new little boy!

Arrow Acres Bubinga Crosby
was born June 8th at 10:00 am
17 lbs.
Dam: Melody
Sire: Abenaki Wski

He came into this world on a hot, steamy day at the shore!
Melody was very restless this morning and was showing all the classic signs
that today was the day. My mom, dad, Liz and Andee were all there to witness this birth.
We do have a video. I'll post that tomorrow for those that are interested.

Trying to get up.

Mom and baby are doing well. He had a little trouble nursing, but with some help he is getting the hang of it. Melody has been wonderful and actually let us help her. I wasn't there for the birth, but I heard that she got a big bag of carrots today! She LOVES her carrots.

He was able to weasel his way in around the hay bin right away. Just like a boy...getting in trouble! My mom had to help him out. Look at their hair! It matches.

This is my mom sharing the good news on the phone with her best friend, Kate.
Bing was checking it all out!
He reminds me of a baby deer. We think he is a medium fawn color.

Meeting my youngest son, Garrett.

We are very happy to have our two little crias here. This entire process has been so exciting.
We will keep you up to date on our newest addition as well as the rest of the herd.
