    When I bred the ewes and does for early kids and lambs this year? Yikes! Working with one ewe having weak contractions, and hubby hollers from the barn, 'NUTMEG IS KIDDING!!! COME QUICK!!' Forget doing Christmas dinner for the extended family, or going anywhere today, tomorrow, the next day...but at least so far, so good, all of them are surviving. Now we just have to finish digging out some of the snow from the big blizzard before the next 'significant snowfall' hits mid week. Groan. Love those babies! So cute!! Jan in Co

    Well, I'm sure that was the merriest of Christmases! Congratulations, and keep us posted on the new babies.

    Jan, hope all is fine. They say here in Co it will be really nice (to help melt some of that snow) then Wed (tomorrow) we are in for another storm. Good Luck and Congrats on the babies.
