On Feb 26th 2015, we had our second baby to be born on the farm since the 1940’s!
It was a balmy -27 F
Lulu spent her first few days in a paper towel box in the kitchen wearing a pair of preemi baby jammies.
It’s important for babies to get their mothers first milk…immediately. It is also important to not be attacked by the mother while trying to obtain the first milk. It only took a few attempts for me to realized I needed back up. Another phone call I am sure my sister never thought she’d get!
Freedom is not a big fan of being milked. I am not a big fan of milking sheep. I hope we have no repeat performances of that debacle.
