Nellie Belle had her babies late yesterday.  Two little ewes.  She was so big we thought she may have had more in there.  The first one presented breech, tail first, so we had to assist.  Our sheep either give birth near dawn or dusk.  I much prefer the early births because it means the temperature is going to get warmer, not colder.  Poor Nellie has so much milk right now she walks funny.  They spent the night at the little barn, we moved them into the big pasture this morning so are now making new friends.  Our cow Jessica greets all the babies with a lick of her black tongue.  I guess it’s her way to say ‘hey’.

    Thanks! Naming is the hardest part… I’m still calling my bottlefed kid ‘Baby Girl’. I need to change that soon!
