Update On Ed And The Twins

     Ed is probable not going to walk ever so we have to put him to sleep.  Because a herd animal that can't run is a dead herd animal. Ed is 1 week old and still can't stand.  
      But the twins that are 8 days old are doing well and have been playing outside in the field. There got there Shorts or CDT and got Docked.( 3-3-12) also Emily got her short but didn't get docked yet. I weighed the twins today (3-4-12) and Eli weighed 19.50Lbs and Maggie Jr. weighed 16lbs. 
     Still waiting for my other 3 ewes to lamb.  Will put some Pictures up soon. Will keep you Posted.
