Jimmy Dickens and Minnie Pearl taking a nap in the sunshine. Minnie couldn't keep her eyes open for this picture but Jimmy gave his all. We have had two ewes to have triplets and neither would keep the smallest of the litter so we have been bottle feeding them But....last night old Molly ewe lost a set of twins. I watched her all day yesterday but she just couldn't have them so Martha and I had to pull them and both were dead. Molly has been trying to claim every new baby for the last couple of days so hopefully she will claim these two bottle babies. We rubbed them with Molly's two dead babies, hoping Molly would claim these two adorable babies as hers....time will tell. Mollie went through alots yesterday and I will just be thankful if she lives. This morning Jimmy was trying to suck old Molly but she is not too hot on the idea yet!
