Sunday Stills & Happy Mother’s Day!

From over at Sunday Stills, the theme this week was black and white of any of the previous assignments and being that it’s mother’s day I chose this photo of my ewe (from the Animal’s of Husbandry theme) still nursing her twin boys who are now two and a half months old.


Aren’t you glad that if you had twins they wouldn’t have horns!?
