Big, black and beautiful

Friday, July 3, 2015   And we have yet another baby! I knew Miranda was close when she spent the night in her favorite dusting hole. Sure enough, just as I started to vacuum the pastures yesterday morning, she started her labor. I’m really a ‘hands off’ labor assistant, so mostly I just watched. But eventually it became clear that this baby was too big for Miranda to push out.  yikes. No amount of coaching was going to help so I needed to pull.  Oh my, Miranda and I both worked pretty hard to get that baby out.  But finally out she came, whew.  The birth was stressful for all of us, and the baby took a while to recover. But she looks good this morning. 🙂

Photo of the day: Jet black, kinky curly fine fleece and a very big 21 pound girl! Thank you General Patton!mirandasgirlI was so relieved to see her finally up and nursing in the afternoon.IMG_4903This was Miranda earlier in the day – she chose Chief for her labor assistant. ❤️doulachief
