    The Newest Baby

    As promised in the other thread, we have a new baby at the farm is name is Bubalis Bugaloo Harbinger, and he is a baby Water Buffalo!

    He was driven up from North Carolina in the back of our Honda CRV, at a few days shy of his two month birthday. His call name is simply Boo. He is being quarantined for two weeks, tries to nurse on my skirt, and is gonna be a big strong guy some day, and help clear vegetation from the brook and pond bankings, and someday sire babies.

    The gosling are holding steady at 9 - we have only lost two of the 11 Winnie hatched, and the bigger they get - and they are growing sooo quickly - the less vulnerable they are.

    Beautiful Boo!

    How precious!!! Oh, that face!!! Welcome home, Bubalis Bugaloo Harbinger, a.k.a. Boo, most adorable 300 lb baby Water Buffalo ever! But at this rate, you really, really need to trade in that Honda CRV for a truck!

    Hee hee - yeah, but I spend so much time, and travel so many miles, and pick-ups get awful gas mileage. Every one I looked at did. We have friends and neighbors with trucks we can usually borrow when necessary, and of course large animal vets do make barn calls around here!

    Oh my goodness, hello, Boo, water buffalo! How did you wind up in North Carolina and end up making your way north, I wonder? I read on the National Geographic Web site that water buffaloes can grow as tall as 5 to 6 feet, and that they are powerful animals! I imagine you will be a good ambassador for your species, especially with the kids! I agree with my friend phesina: "We're looking forward to seeing more great photos and learning all about you as you grow!!!"
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!


    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

    "We consume our tomorrows fretting about our yesterdays." -- Persius, first century Roman poet

    He was born to Fading D farms in North Carolina, friends of Kermit's - we almost got an older boy from them last fall, but weren't ready for him physically yet when winter hit. Kermit has had water buffalo here in Vermont before, and wants to eventually have enough to make buffalo mozzarella again, but that's years away! In the part of Africa some of Kermit's family is from, they are pretty common, and beloved, family members.

    Here's a recent picture of him - you can see how his horns are already growing!



    And here's the newest clutch, hatched by Trier, the brown (African) goose. They include one Chinese gosling, one duckling, and three gosling that are probably from her eggs!
