    All in all pretty good news, sorry Lucy lost 5 but you did a great job getting her to accept the other two.
    I am SO glad Erik is there and wants to help keep the farm going. Perhaps he can be a formal partner in the business.

    How was the FFA meeting?

    You did good in getting Lucy to accept her babies. That's what we do, pull out all the stops to save lives. Yay for Priss! She is one awesome momma!

    Bolero and the others were very curious what the small gray creatures were moving about in their pasture

    Prissy being protective as always, so sadly I wasn't allowed very close. I managed to move her out for a bit so I could say hi to the babies. I checked the genders of her babies 8 gilts and 2 boarlings.
