    Sorry, Uncle Joe ... It's a girl, she gets a name.

    And as she was born while the storms were at their hight ... I thinking a 'storm' name ... but it has not come to me - yet. :D

    Hi Andi,
    Congratulations, she's a beautiful little girl. Looks like mom and baby are doing well. Are they Jacobs?

    I just finished washing the last bag of last years wool ... now it is time to start over. :D

    Always something to do. ;)

    My hubby and son will start shearing soon. (well when we get three days of dry weather together.)

    HI Andi,
    Oh my, twins. Please excuse my ignorance about such things, but, are twins common among Jacobs? I love to spin their fleece but other wise know nothing about them.
    Thanks,
    Moose

    I can only speak of my Jacobs ... the first birth will be a single ... then after that twins...

    BUT ... Boo & Splash has gave me twins now for two years ...and this year is a single ... (new Ram) :dunno:

    So now I'm not sure ... I've had a pattern ... till this year. :dunno:

    I'm watching Cookie and dottie ... both have given me twins in the past and Grey Lady gave me a single (Panda :D)

    My pattern that has worked for 5 years is well ... :gaah: lol ...so I will wait and see.

    Mother Nature always likes to keep you on your toes! ;)

    Muddy baby

    I'm not sure what is about storms and babies this year ... :eek: Mom was not happy but I brought baby to the house to warm him and clean off. Tessa had to do her part ... guard and warm him. :D Baby is now back with his mom and Tessa is a unhappy camper. lol :)
