Life in another small town like all small towns...really

When the nannies have young kids, they each get their own cube in the maternity ward. It helps make sure the kids stay fed and warm.
Twee's trips are right next door. They get to have the rest of the stall when I'm in mucking and the twins go outside.
The twins have been going outside for a week now.
The trips got to go outside for a short while yesterday afternoon.
Its getting difficult to tell who is who. Angus sticks out with his size and speckled ears. The rest??!!
And this is amazing. All three triplets nursing at the same time. In the Boer goat world, people look for single teated does, but with triplets, that would be a significant disadvantage. Many of my does have two teats on each side. Some more dominant than the other. Twee has three large teats and a smaller one, but they all have milk and they all get used. Sometimes imperfection works!
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!
