Introducing Ginger X Shamrock Twin Doelings

Ginger had her kids in the wee hours of Sunday morning.  The first one was born at about 2:30 A.M.  I heard her scream over the baby monitor, then baby number one bleat her first little bleat.  Within a minute or two I was in the barn and drying her off, plugging in the heating pad and using the hair dryer.  It was such a cold night, about -15 degrees F, I later found out.  It took about three hours to get everyone dry and warm, and settled in.  I was still a bit concerned about mama Ginger when I left the barn, but I had to get some rest and warm up myself.  Two and a half hours later I was back in the barn doing the morning chores, and all was well.
These are the friendliest kids we've ever had, and I'm enjoying them so much.  It will be hard to see them go when it's time.  However, they'll be ready to go around the end of May, and go they must.
Here they are!  Cute, right!?!
