Meet Pepper and Salt!

Ginger dropped two lovely does as the sun was setting Wednesday.
With a little help they were up an nursing right off! We've christened them Pepper and Salt!

There really isn't anything quite like birth! The initial gasp of joy and emotion, the panic to rush in and do something, the reason telling you to leave Mama to her work, and then....the beautiful wave of humility that washes over a farmer when he realizes he had so little to do with this grand miracle. We have never experienced Spring so deeply!
We lost Dixie's twins. It was a hard birth, and one was born almost dead.
Mama is doing fine, and the hens have come to keep her company this morning.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.
