Surprise.....another set of Twins



We can go for years and never have a set of 

TWINS...



Yesterday we had our third set of twin calves.

Their mother is a 1st time heifer...

heifers rarely make much milk.....sigh.






We have them sorted off into a smaller pasture

so we can keep an eye on them for a few days

to be sure the heifer is caring for them.






The goats peeked around the corner of the barn

to see what all the commotion was about

while we were sorting off the new twins.


We have 5 heifers left to calve.

Then we can put this calving season to rest.



I captured a video of the heifer 

and her first calf...

we did not realize she had a twin 

until the next morning....ugh.

Wow! 3 sets in one year. Sounds like a lot more work for you.

Twins are no fun....yes, more time and work. It is better to have a big single calf that you can turn right out with the mother. Twins need extra attention and you end up with 2 small animals. A single is always best.

Thanks for the video - always fun to see the what's happening on the farm! Maybe there's something in the water producing all of these twins! Let's hope this mama bonds with both babies.
