Barn Time

This week's two sets of twins are still spending their day in the barn, especially since the weather has been all over the place. One moment the sun is out. The next, its raining sideways.  Tonight we went out to bring the goats in, and by the time we closed the doors and settled everyone down, the ground was coated with snow.
Layla with her twin does. A day and a half old.
Trinity with her bucklings, Pip and Squeak
After everyone goes out in the morning, the indoor kids get to roam around with their moms while I muck.
Here is a VIDEO from this morning.

This is how the five older kids came in last night.
Mud balls!
Below is what it looks like with four nannies and their nine kids at their feeding bowls, nursing and playing at dinner time.
Jocks flash light eyes just fascinate me!
After we are all done playing, the kids do what they do best...
 - snuggle.

I love Jock's eyes! Border Collies fascinate me. Love the little mud balls, I'd cuddle them, muddy or not!
