"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Leap Year on the Farm

Well hotdog! Leap year on the farm has been exciting! Nellie, the LaMancha has given birth to twins! Remember~this is a farm blog...so critter birth photos are uncut and showing how life is.

Nellie with her twins. I love how the little's are wobbly legged when they are born. So cute. If you remember Norm-the papa, was black...so it was neat to have a white one and a black one. Norm is no more as he loved my gardens as much as I do, so we sold him to a butcher. On the farm we now call our flooring Norm or even Mr. Ham(the ram) or Mrs. Ham(the ewe) as they financed the overhaul. Fortunately, Norm provided nicely in the kidding!
On all fours at last!! Yes, that is afterbirth. I am fairly certain the black one is a female. Waiting to see on the white one.

Nellie is doing a good job so far!

High Fives from Delilah to Fourth! Yay

And because I can~ I am adding a cuteness photo. Lizzie and Laura enjoying dinner time with the big girls!


Happy Leap Year from the Double Nickel
