I can't think every one enough for all your help and I'm sure I'll need it again in the future, since these are our first and definitely not last kids :)

This is the FF. She is not giving much milk, but I am hoping to increase it by added milkings. She gave me 1 QT the first milking after 24 hours, then 2 cups after twelve and 1QT after twelve. This morning she gave 2 1/2 cups and I'm hoping for a little over a QT tonight. I know it isn't much but I'm actually thankful, we are learning together. She is a sweetheart on the stand. She just stands there and chews her cud. So far she has been real patient with me. :) AND her milk is just awesome. Beats any cow hands down.

This is the little one we bought for company. I think they are both just beautiful. The have the most wonderful temperments.

They are such loving sweeties. They just want to be scratched and petted. The kids are having a ball with them. They certainly get lots of attention.
