The Winner is....and a New Baby

Today is the day for my very first giveaway drawing! Thanks to everyone that entered and to those who blogged about my giveaway I gave you your 5 extra entries! I  wrote down all the entries......




and put them in a bag..




and pulled out..



The Tales from the Williamson's Trails! I just put Williamson's on the paper because I had a lot of entries to write and I am ..well,a little lazy! A big THANK YOU to everyone who entered!


On to other farm news....Angry Eyes,our first baby born on the farm,had her first baby yesterday while we were away at fiddle lessons.A big little girl!



She is almost as big as the twins that were born several weeks ago! Angry Eyes did miss a few spots cleaning her off but hey,it is her first time!



I am glad she didn't have any trouble since we were not home.The baby is frisky and nursing well. I noticed the baby's cord was way too long so I scooped her up to bring her inside to tie it off and shorten it and how does she repay me for my kind and caring ways..



yeah..that is exactly what it looks like! A huge, gummy, first poop all over me! Ingrate! Well, it's not like it is the first time I have been pooped on! Farm life you know! Look at that face...could a body really be mad at such a cute little face?

awwwwww. too cute. Getting pooped or peed on is all a part of the fun experience of having farm babies. Much more fun when it happens to, hypothetically speaking, your child...
What did you name her?

Polly,

Yes I agree,very funny when it happens to THe Boy! She will not have a name,we don't name the ones destined to be food,it is just easier that way.

Joanna,
Yep big poops for sure!

It's a great feeling when the ones you've raised start having babies for you. She looks like a big healthy girl. At least you know that her digestive system is functioning normally !!

Congratulations to the winner!

Such a cute baby and a good Mama. Congratulations to you on the new baby.

Fiddle Lesson's sound like fun. My daughters Great Grandfather Raulerson on her father's side used to make fiddle's.
