Urvashi Birthed Twins!!!

Dear Readers;

  Well...what a fantastic morning! Gaura Nitai let the herd out of the barn as usual. The animals all walked to the paddy and when he went to turn around to fix the fence...Urvashi dropped two calves ..plop...plop...right in the field! This was quite the shock because all experts who saw her ...even up to a few days ago all agreed that she was not pregnant. She was not very big and her milk bag was not filling up so we concluded that she must of had a miscarriage early on in her pregnancy. Imagine our surprise this morning!  We are very happy and here is the first picture and short video.

  The twins are quite small and weight approximately 40lb each. We believe that they are folks this could be our teeny ox team:) We had the experts come and see if they were all right and they assured us that the mom and calves were healthy and strong. We just feel so rediculously incompetent. Oh...well...all we can do is stumble forward...right?

  We need to go and bottle feed the calves because they are having a problem latching on to the teat.

Hare Krsna.
