Birth Announcement on the farm

Welcome, Ivy and April, born Friday April 1, 2011


Avanell’s twin girls. Avanell’s mothering instinct kicked right in and she started licking her kids to clean them up and love them. In fact, if anybody’s kids got in her reach–Noah, Jonah, me–she’d lick em and clean em, you had to watch your ears. The kids are big and beautiful and nursing, contentedly with momma.

More photos coming soon. And as timing had it, there was a nice group of farm supporters, and a cute line of homeschoolers, all taking in the miraculous experience of birth. Couldn’t have done it (or not nearly so enjoyably) without all of your help. Thanks to all for your support through this first for me in animal midwifery! Time for a well-earned shower.
