Sprung

The spring is our favorite time of year because all the new babies are born and we get to meet them all. But it can also be sad, because most of the babies leave to go to new homes. Spud left, and Ivar left, and Mac left, and Frosty and Sparkles left.

And then last weekend Corky and Clarence left.

But Acorn, their triplet sister, stayed here.

For the last two days she has been standing at the fenceline gazing out blankly. Then she goes and lies alone in a corner of the baby barn.

We are going to have a Jamboree this year in celebration of Baby Belle's Birthday. I think that will cheer everyone up.

The farmer already told Acorn she can be in the baby goat races.

She is a fast runner, and I hope she wins.

I'm sure the jamboree will cheer up Acorn. It sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

Little Acorns, we hope you feel spirited soon and run like the wind.

Poor, poor Lil Acorn - can't Baby Belle keep her company? Hugs for Acorn from KY.

I want a picture of Acorn. That way I can see for myself. But, indeed, a Baby Belle Jamboree would definitely take her mind off things. I think you should have a Swedish Goldfishing booth too... and a Peanut roll.
