Early this morning, just past midnight, Rob and I were in the barn watching Gretel clean and love her newborn lambs. She had twin boys, both of which are strong and healthy. I helped her dry them off and then cut their cords. They were standing in no time and searching for food. A couple hours later, after making sure both babies had eaten, Gretel had fresh hay, and the new family was together in a jug, we headed off to bed, feeling happy and peaceful. Gretel is an amazing Mama and the new family has an incredible bond. We look forward to watching the little ones grow and thrive here on the farm.
