MyPoWriYe # 53 - Birth Announcement

Yesterday we had two surprise babies here!  Mark went out to check on the sheep, and low and behold...NaRae was in labor.  No sooner had Mark set up a good nursery than NaRae's second lamb was already born.  Welcome to little Abbott (ram) and Costella (ewe), named in honor of a very busy baseball/softball season for Henry and Georgia.  Now we just need to wait to see if Nora and Rainbow are pregnant...

If you are wondering why we don't know when our sheep are pregnant, it is because they are so very woolly that it is nearly impossible to tell.
