Oh what a wonderful Sunday we had here on the farm.
I think all of your good wishes for (One Eyed) Myrtle helped.
She went into labor late Sunday morning
and with the help of Dr. Becky, in a few hours we had triplets.

I video'd each birth so that I could share it with you.

First's a boy!!

Second's a boy!!

Third it another boy??
No.....a girl!!

Myrtle spent the rest of the day cleaning her babies.
The babies spent the day learning to nurse and resting up
from their journey.

Very soon the activity and the antics will begin.
Stay tuned!!

Great job, Myrtle!!
