Rusty sent this very excitedly last night. He was thrilled to meet this youngster for the first time, and believe me when I say I know just how he feels.
Just a reminder that we were lucky enough in Martinez to have kits with our old mom four years. And this will be the new mom’s fourth year too. We’ve had four kits twice, three kits twice, and one kit twice. I think that means this year the odds are in favor of having two kits. Don’t you?
It’s amazing to me to think that we’ve had our new mom almost as long as we had our old mom. And also to notice that our new mom is a little more attentive and protective of the kits than our original. They’re supervised longer and stay in the lodge longer. But it goes without saying that we will always love our original mom of the special tail best.
Because she was our first.
