Momma Pearl and lamb

I could tell Pitiful Pearl was ready. She was pacing, pawing the ground, going down, getting up etc. and I just sat with her telling her it would be over soon and indeed very soon her water broke... On the right the lamb had just landed on the straw and was still in the birth sac... I held my breath until I finally saw a little wiggle of life. Momma Pearl started at the head for the all-over clean up....
Within minutes the lamb was trying to stand with gentle nudging from Momma Pearl.. and the cleanup continued and the big search for the teat began with the lamb sucking on anything and everything, including my finger, until it found the magic elixir.
And to make the day even more perfect, I FOUND THE DOOR!!!!! It was too heavy for me to move but a friend is coming in the morning to help me... A big-time day for memories!!!!
