It was such a “spring like” day today here in the North Georgia Mountains. I gave my children the day off from home schooling today so we could get some farm work done outside because it was so nice out. While working outside I saw Amelia and Mini Bell sunning themselves. God is so good. They are so cute and beautiful to me.
I love to watch them play and jump around. They are Twinkies babies that were born six weeks ago. They are now drinking two 20 ounce bottles a day, one in the morning and one in the evening each. I have seen them eating hay and just this week they started picking at and eating grain. They together eat about a fourth of a cup of grain a day now. They are growing well and I am very pleased with them. I will worm them as soon as they are around eight weeks old and at eight weeks I will drop them down to only one bottle a day. (just the evening feeding) I have still not seen them chewing their cud yet at all. So I guess they are still developing their rumen. They should start to chew any time now.
