Kidding Season 2012 Is Here!
Aziza produced two nice, healthy bucklings this morning. Its a rainy day, but relatively warm for New Year's Eve. Its about 45F right now. She picked a good day to kid.
They were up, dry and carrying on. Things were so well done that I only trimmed one umbilical cord.
We moved everyone to a waiting pen where the warming barrel was set up and ample food was given to "Z". She was a bit nervous, but she got over it fast as more and more people stopped to admire her boys. Its been a long while since we had babies in the barn. After a while, enough was enough though. If both kids were being held, she started to complain, as she wanted to know where they were.
Right now the three are in the barn bonding and nursing. Looks like we have two more "A" names to come up with in 2011.
The blog is really notes to my friends, old and new, to let you know what's going on in our lives. Its also a diary of sorts for myself. It started at the farm in Ligonier, PA, hence the name, but now life and work has moved us back to Connecticut,
I've always taken lots of photos and sent postcards from everywhere we travel, just to keep in touch. Email took over and then the digital camera.
Instead of me plugging up your email, you can check in when you have the time.
And yes, another town with the same problems as any other!!!
Please enjoy and let me hear from you...really~

I know a lot of people know English much better than we know any other language, but for those that want some help, me included, I'm trying this translator. Please leave a message to let us know where you are viewing from. Ciao!
