Thank you guys. I appreciate the kind words about my nephews picture, he is a little miracle. My sis and bro-in-law live only 3 miles away from my farm, so I have the privilege of seeing my nephew 3-4 times a week. I enjoy every second, and with the warmer temps now, he can come outside and play with the deer. I can't wait until he gets to bottle feed with me, last year he was only 2 months old when the fawns were born, to young to remember, this year he is going to be thrilled!

Charlie you are right, some little boy snuck a bite out of the cookie before giving it to the deer, lol.

Dennis I might send the photo in, that would give people an image from the lighter, less complicated side of deer farming. We are all about rules and testing, and high feed costs, anymore. I get so frustrated and caught up in all the negative, but when I sit back and look at this photo, I actually get a little emotional because it is moments like these that made me want to get into deer farming, I wanted the close, day to day, hands on contact with whitetails. Now I have the privilege of passing that onto my nephew Andrew, and lots of other little children (and adults) that visit my farm throughout the year.

Today I had triplets for the first time in 5 years (the only other time I had them there was one stillborn)

The doe that had them was live bred, dog tame, her name is Rhoda.

I have hundreds of pics from her 3 hour birthing, but I will share just a few.

First, the doe fawn. I gently pulled this fawn out, to assist momma because she was really struggling with number one, she actually seemed to appreciate it.

Here's Rhoda pushing out number two, which is a buck, this is 1 hour 45 minutes after fawn one was born.

Thanks for all the comments. I had a lot of fun watching and taking pictures yesterday.

Charlie, I too wonder how in the world she fit all those in her belly, but she did somehow. All survived night #1 and will only get stronger now. Jared, it won't be long until you get your General G. fawns. So far he is up to 4 buck and 1 doe fawn. Just your doe, and one more of mine to fawn this year out of him.

All the good events of fawning yesterday were met with a little bit of disappointment. I walk into my deer barn to find my bottle fed yearling buck Completely Shattered his front leg! No idea what he did or how it happened, but it is a terrible break, just above the knee joint. I am having no luck at all with yearling bucks so far this year. But I will not let that get me down, I think it will heal and all will be ok.
