Here's our 4th cria of the fall.
Our boys have decided to name him Hershey.
He is a very deep chocolate color so it fits him.

He looks so soft and huggable! Are the babies gentle and calm or does that require a lot of training?

Typically they are gentle but adapt to their mother's personality very quickly. So, it kind of depends on the mother.
The more you handle them they calmer they are it seems.
I try to spend a lot of time really close to them without handling them everytime. It seems they trust me more and remain more calm while I hold them.
The young ones can become more used to handling once they are weaned as well.
