    As far as I know everything is running okay. I just sent some registrations in and had them back within 2 weeks.

    Placed a heater barrel in with the babies when the temps dropped Thursday night. Had to turn on the heat in the house so figured the babies needed some more warmth.

    I’ll try to get some new pics and of course weights on them in a bit.

    Weighed the twins last night...
    Snow White 4.8#
    Rapunzel 4.6#

    The twins are gaining faster than the triplets. (Makes sense just a switch after 3 sets of trips this year.)

    I need to shave their heads tomorrow and see if they are polled. Would be nice if both are and I don’t have to get the dehorning iron out again this year.

    Milked Caramel this morning as her udder seemed quite full. I took about a cup when the kids took over for their full.

    Pics are from this evening. I took about 50 and these are the three that aren’t a blur!

    I love those cute twins! Caramel should reward your great care with her grateful acceptance of being milked! Let's hope. :)

    Just in case you weren't aware B&B... after you quote a post, you can type directly in that same (new) post you are creating by placing your cursor after the last typing in the window and adding your comments. You don't have to post the quote then answer in a follow up post. Here's an example:
