It’s  been a  busy and exciting  two months on the farm. Not only do have we welcomed numerous baby chicks,  but baby Velma and Valentino were born March  27th  to Vina.  Vina  had all the instincts of a good momma except for her willingness to nurse two  babies. I can understand the stress of these demands however it then entailed  our family to take part four to six times a day in what I would called forced nursing. Not pretty or fun! I am glad to report that Velma now thinks we are her surrogate parents .  She is more fun then a puppy ! Her brother Valentino is a strong stout white cashmere buckling. I can’t wait to  be knitting with his fiber and wearing it! Happy days ahead  on the farm in green pastures and good company. What else could we ask for?
