Beautiful baby boy born on friday Feb. 22 at the lodge. Big Bertha surprised us with a little one in the middle of winter. Baby and mom are doing fine. Now to think of a name for the little one. Frank was maybe thinking of the name Stormy - as we had a snow storm that night and had to work quickly to get the barn ready for him. Come visit and watch him grow.
Update on baby - we have a name for him. Since he was born the morning of a heavy storm - luckily we were able to get the barn all ready for him. His name will be Stormy.
