Twins!

One of our first time heifers had twin HEIFERS!! Mama and babies are doing fine. Thankfully it's heifers.
She abandoned one of them, but we have both of them sucking off her now.
It is very rare for twins to be heifers and even more rare for the mama to be a first timer, it's my first time with twin heifers and second time with a first timer.
They need names!! :)

The suggestions I was going to put weren't nearly as creative as @Golden Horse ...I think Olympic & Rio are perfect names!

Ride more, worry less.

Come on, what where your names?
I'm kinda leaning towards classy and jazz.......but I still would like some more suggestions.

This little guy showed his face several weeks to early. He is only 29 lbs, when he should be 40 or 50! Here he is in size comparison to a 1 yr old border collie.
He can't even stand yet, so he's getting babied like crazy. And he needs a name too!!

Lol they weren't THAT bad. Actually I love Ginger and nutmeg. But a family members name is Ginger, so that won't work. :(

My sisters say if I call the twins Classical and Jazz then call the little guy Rapper or rocker. IDK he kinda looks like a Henry or a Herbie.
On a good note he drank two pints of milk this morning!!
