|Amelia's drawing of the cow giving birth on Christmas Day - she explained the baby is still in its special sack..|
So we went off on Christmas morning to get their milk and happened to catch some birthing action... We all watched intently and Farmer C safely delivered a gorgeous big baby boy..
A little graphic but what an experience!! The girls ran and hid for some of it but watched almost the whole birth in anticipation and then we chatted about the birth of baby Jesus as we lugged the milk up the hill for our babies.. Once all the guests arrived for Christmas dinner, we relayed the excitement!!! It was final - everyone was keen for another viewing if the opportunity arose.. I promptly asked Farmer S to let us know if there was to be another birth - and before long we had received the call and the entire family - red wine and glasses in hand - headed down the hill to watch another birth... The kids all stood up on the gate and watched intently as the adults formed a somewhat swaying viewing gallery in the back stands. We all watched wide eyed and before too long we had witnessed another Christmas Day birth!! We then went on to enjoy a great meal, lots of wine and giggles... It was such a warm and fuzzy experience that we enjoyed as a family - or perhaps that was the red wine?? Anyway, i thought it certainly added a country flavor to our family Christmas..
Thanks for reading - i hope everyone enjoyed the time with family and friends as much as we did
