    I have no idea but we have it as well. I call it a weed since it happily grows in the flower beds.

    Congrats on the twin boys. Their mom is marked so pretty! My ewes pretty much give birth at night and surprise me in the mornings, but I have been present for two births.

    Her daughter serin literally has contoured cheeks :love i love the markings her and her lambs have. Speaking of which i think shes been a little depressed since being seperated from her daughter. They were bonded pretty tight 20190608_084048.jpg

    I don't think they ALWAYS come out fast. But it is best when they do, I think it means much less likelihood of problems.
