New baby!

Welcome to Rainier Wolfcastle!

He was born on August 18, 2007, at around 8:30 a.m., and weighed in at nearly 21 lbs.! His mother is Cabernet, who was on progesterone because we thought she was due two weeks later. His father is Hakuna Matata, who now resides on the East Coast.

We're pleased at how robust this little guy is. He has gained six pounds in a week! Normally, you can expect cria to gain 8 oz. a day, but he has put on nearly a pound a day. The vet thought he looked two weeks old on the day he was born.

A boy isn't a girl, but we're pleased with strong babies one way or another.
