They were (of course) born yesterday afternoon during the rain/hail storm with the wind roaring insanely. Instead of going into the shelter, the mamma just had them right out in the open. Kid 4 saw them first and called everyone else to action.
They all seem to be healthy. They have been dubbed Katniss, Gayle, and Peeta. About an hour after they were named, I started to laugh as I remembered the mamma's full name is Cornucopia (we usually call her Corna for short.) It just struck me as kind of funny. If you've read or seen The Hunger Games, you'll probably get why.
I haven't run for few days. I was out jogging with Lexi the other morning. She saw a killdeer and lunged forward. The leash snapped tight. I looked at the dog and totally missed the deep tire rut right in front of me. I rolled my ankle pretty good but was able to run home after gimping around for a few minutes. It doesn't really hurt, but it's still a bit stiff so I'm trying to take it easy.
We have a rule that our kids can't date until they are sixteen. Kid 1 has hit that milestone and is now out on her first date as I write this. It's probably a good thing that Stable Boy was at a meeting when the boy arrived to pick her up, cuz who knows what might have happened!
