How to make LOTS OF BUCKS – Let’s Do The Time Warp Again!

WARNING: The photographs in this post are awful.  I refuse, adamantly, to take any responsibility for this.  Babies have their very own agenda and timing.  No telling when they’ll decide to grace our earth with their presence.  At the time of their arrival, the only thing handy was a prehistoric relic of a phone and we were desperately trying to keep our distance, so as not to disturb Mum or baby.

JUST BORN – WELCOME TO THE WORLD!

However, there was a distinct interest shown in seeing these buck as small as humanly (sorry, buckedly) possible, so I’ve included the initial “make the professionals cringe” material, in the hope that you get some of the experience.

WARNING TWO: The audio contains slight swearing.  Once again, I deny all responsibility (I’m getting good at this).  Men, apparently, have no natural paternal instinct and, being the tough-guy Starbuck thought himself, he was somewhat over-excitable and kept knocking over the poor, wobbly-legged thing.

UPDATE TO ABOVE WARNING: No warning required.  I find I have no idea how to attach the video.

DON’T LEAVE ME BEHIND MOM, I’M RIGHT BEHIND YOU!

Alright then, as all the clever people that read my previous post now know, we are doing a time-warp.  If you failed to, fear not, I am not calling you stupid, but it might make a whole lot more sense if you popped back there for the update.

LOOK HOW SMALL I AM COMPARED TO MY BIG COUSIN ON THE RIGHT – MY MOM IS ON THE LEFT

Both girls had a baby each but not, as I may mislead you to believe, at the same time.  However, I need to turn the “time-warp” into a “sound barrier speed-warp” for fear that I’ll spend the next 365 days posting about buck and neglecting the current animals.

ONE MUM, ONE BIG BABY AND ONE SMALL BABY

The babies were healthy and happy and played together like real little cousins, learning how to head-butt and pronk like real little stars.

AWFUL PHOTO BUT SHOWS THE BABIES PLAYING “HEAD-BUTTING”

    • I have to agree – they are adorable – thank you. The Springbok is only found in the southern and south western regions of Africa (not even right through Africa, like most of our other wild life), so I really thought it’d be great to share it with everyone.

    • Why thank you Mollie – you are so sweet. I think I’ll take you up on that offer. Would be great to post it – even though you can barely see what’s happening, it does give an indication of life for a new born Springbok.
