Yep I like bottle feeding it is a lot of work but it pays in the end......except when you have to push them through the chute. But I'd much rather be pushing them than watching them try to climb the walls.

My thought exactly Dennis.....we have some wild ones in the bunch. In fact I call them Snort and Stomp. There's a few more, but I won't let you know what we call them. We love our bottle feds....I've heard people complain about how hard it is to push them, but at least you know they aren't going to hit the fence and break their neck!!



We just watched my bottle fed from 2 years ago give birth in the dark last night. We were 4 feet away from her with a flashlight watching the whole thing.....didn't bother her one bit. Amazing!! Makes all that hard work during the summer very worthwhile.
