    OK....so I got brave today and let 6 mo old Max free range with the just over 2 mo old girls. Not a good idea at this time. Everything was fine at first, everybody milling about and such.

    But his 'wild oats' got the better of him and he tried to mount a couple of the babies. He's ready....they are not. [​IMG]
