    She was born this morning. Literally she is about the size of a cat. She is tiny. She can stand under her mama's belly to eat. The cutest thing.
    That's the good news.

    The bad news is she was a twin but her brother died. I had been soooo hoping for twins so I'm just sick over the loss of the other one.

    But, the bright side is I have her, hope she does well with the blasted cold we're having tonight. I moved her and her mama into the barn to keep the wind off them anyway.

    What a blessing when you don't lose the nanny!
    Try as we may; they can die or (still born) at the vets office also!
    Sorry about one but glad about the other 2. She is cute!
