Hello all! This is Margaret, Deborah's eldest, filling in while she is away on her birthday weekend.
Well, we had a bit of a surprise on Friday. I checked Anne's ligaments in the morning before I went to work and thought they were there, though I did notice her udder had bagged up a bit. Later that afternoon Mom called me.
"Did you check Anne's ligaments this morning?"
"Yep. They were there."
"Would you bet money on that?"
"Because of the way you're saying that."
"But you said you were sure."
"Well, now I'm not."
Turns out Anne must have given birth around three o'clock that afternoon. Jonathan, my brother, was the one that found them at about five, and they were almost dry. So she did a good job on her own, at least. First birth we've missed this year. She had twin bucks that are well matched!
