Getting Kind of Crowded Down Here
My favorite new technology is the Cell Phone. It is a convenient tool for calling the house when extra help is needed in the barn and it is a great tool in an emergency, when veterinary advice is necessary. This time of year, Stephen and I dont go down to the barn without our cell phones; the ewes udders are getting bigger and tighter every day and two dairy goats are due next week.
So last night, when Stephen left to do the early evening barn check and a few minutes later the phone rang, I was sure that he was calling about lambs. "Its getting kind of crowded down here," he said. "Lambs?" I asked. "Kids." he replied.
Does. Early. Triplets. Perfect.
