Here’s a few photos of what it looks like when I do Nessie’s 5am feeding.

Nessie comes tearing around a corner after letting her out of her pasture. She sure loves to run. Baby wasn’t like that at all even when he was a young bouncy lad. In fact, it was hard to get him to move at all. But not Nessie, she’ll use any excuse to run.

Nessie and Kiwi find something good to eat. They were together constantly, until I finished Kiwi’s pen yesterday. They ate together, drank together, and slept together. I feel really bad separating them, but I just don’t think Kiwi is quite large enough yet to be running around on his own. I hope he grows fast so they can be pastured together soon.
