    Look what DH found when he went out to feed this morning. Good thing he went out when he did. When he went out the first one was just lying there alone. He left the pasture to call me to get towels and when we went back to get her there was her twin. The mother just walked away and left no 2 still in the membrane. DD got her out and bundled her up in the towels. Can't get a weight on them but they are so tiny. About the size of a 6 week kitten. They are now same and warm in DD familyroom near the fireplace in a box. My granddaughter named them Elizabeth and Estelle.

    I love those kind of suprises! They look like a kid I had named Sam, same story nearly, mom had him and left him still sticky and wet, thankfully I got there in time too! Glad you saved them, they wouldn't have made it long out there!

    Those are adorable! Is she feeding them? They need their colostrum, as much as they can get during the first twenty four hours especially! Great luck in finding them when you did!
