Peace and Harmony

Several years ago, when I first met BF, I told him that all I was looking for in a relationship was peace and harmony.
Meet Harmony!
This week, not only have we had snow storms and freezing temperatures, but lots of babies are being born.
Thursday morning, daughter in law was induced. Because of this, BF left early, early, early to go feed at the farm. Sure enough, one cow was having trouble giving birth to her baby, so he addressed that issue. (We now have 8 calves)
And...another lamb was born and in trouble...almost frozen...
About this time, grand baby is coming and we were advised to bring his brother (who was staying with us) and head for the hospital...
What to do???
BF wrapped up the lamb, I warmed up the car (a Ford Escape) and headed for the hospital. Yep...we put the lamb in the back!!!
So every so often, we went out to warm the car, try to get the baby lamb to nurse and then, of course, kept track of daughter in law and the new grand baby.
The birth of Nickolas Jackson was wonderful. Lots of kisses and pics...Then off to warm the car and continue trying to get the lamb to feed.
We ended up bringing the lamb to my house...in the city!!! Below is a pic of her, in my bathroom. All wrapped up and warm. All night we checked on her and fed her...Gosh!!! just like new parents!!!We named her Harmony!
Now do I really want Peace??? ha ha ha...

This is Nickolas Jackson.


All is well..........

Congratulations! Nicholas is gorgeous! Very healthy looking, and a lovely weight. He's going to thrive and grow and bring everyone many peaceful moments. The lamb also looks healthy and about ready to step into the world. You and BF did a fantastic job. Yep, harmony!

Congratulations on all your babies. Your grandson is an adorable one. Looks strong and healthy and fit to soon play with the lambies. Doesn't quite feel like spring yet. When we had twin baby goats on the ranch I took them in the house because they were so frail. Often they became a part of the household and I hated to put them out.
Enjoy all your babies and have a grand week end watching the game.
Loe and Peace,
Manzanita

Now I call that busy. Wow, great success all around. Your grandson is beautiful, can boys be called beautiful? And that lamb is adorable. The lamb should become Nickolas's personal pet. Good work folks.

The thumb and ear form an evocative image. Metaphoric?
