A Pair of Presents from Peaches

Our Christmas presents didn't only appear under our tree this year, but were also left in the barn. Peaches, one of our original does (and also our most prolific) dropped a set of twins--buck on the left and doe on the right. Ralph has been sick so he didn't go along to the family gathering at my brother's over in Perry County. No sooner had we sat down to our holiday dinner when the cell phone rang with the good news. By the time we got home later in the afternoon, the kids were clean, dry and had bellies full of colostrum.
