One more boy and more bear stories

Five down and only one more to go... and the last one was a white male, so we are 4 boys and 1 girl this year. This little guy doesn't have a name yet, I had a girl name picked out hoping that it would be a girl, so much for that. But he sure is cute and the delivery was easy, thank goodness.
All the other cria a doing well, Cadence and Jonah are always running around trying to get Andy to play, Molly just spits at them til they leave her alone. I call them the twins, they kinda look the same, what do you think? Jonah is the darker of the two, and his dad is Dark Fawn and Cadence dad is black, so I would have thought it would be different too. Just goes to show how much I really don't know.
On Friday night our neighbors were out of town and the bear decided that he would like in the shed where they keep corn for the deer. We heard him at about 11pm and tried to scare him off, but obviously that didn't work. The next morning we went to look at the damage, and this is what we found. Notice that the bags of corn look untouched??? Guess it was just the challenge of getting the door off that he wanted.

Dreamcatcher Cadence
Four down and two left to go - so far we have 3 boys and 1 girl. Hopefully the last two will be girls so we can break even, and it looks like brown is my color again this year. Yesterday, August 17, Annabelle went into labor about 9:30 am and Dreamcatcher Cadence was born around 11am. Both of his front feet were kinda stuck, so I had to go in and pull them out, while my teenage son held on to Annabelle. He couldn't leave the barn fast enough when I was done with him. Even though he didn't like it, he did a great job, besides I think it builds character. As for Cadence, his name fits him, while he was getting his bearing yesterday, he was very vocal.
Jonah and Molly

Tomorrow we will be taking the stitches out of Jenis, from her c-section. Both she and Jonah are doing great. I thought I would need to be careful and watch Molly and Andy when I put Jonah in there since he was much smaller, boy was I wrong. I thought about separating them because Jonah is a terror!! He picks on Andy, and Molly is constantly spitting at him.
