|This is Thebe. He was the smaller of the two at 5.07# but is far more active. His white spot form some interocking horse shoes on his right side. His ears are white like Chewie, his sire, but the rest of him is closer to Dawnae's, his dam.|

Welcome to the World, Thebe and Karpo
Dawnae blessed us with twin boys March 9th around 2:30 in the afternoon. They look a lot like her and are already up and around and nursing like champs. We will let them stay with her to nurse at will, and milk her once a day. I have already started the once a day in order to put colostrum in the freezer for emergency use for the next kidding season. Once she milks up we'll have fresh milk again and it will be so nice. She's going to be a little work to milk for sure-far more rambunctious on the stand than Cass, but I think she'll settle in nicely. She birthed unassisted and looks great.
