About a year ago we had Bella and Samson to the vet and had some discussion about breeding. For months and months we watched and noted and counted days... and watched and noted and counted days... and watched and noted and counted days. And nothing happened. Seasons turned and we turned to other tasks - shearing, lambing, hay making. And then in the last few weeks, the kids started noticing a change in Bella. She was a little grouchy and as they put it, becoming obese.
And so, in her own time and season, Mother Nature took charge and delivered the most wonderful surprise... actually seven beautiful surprises. We're so proud of our wonderful mama and of course the papa too.
