I promised you a brayful new friend on Mothers' Day, and here she is! We are all far too busy enjoying her to get down to the business of writing a serious blog post, but I promise you that we will have many tales of tremendous adventure in the weeks to come. Just you wait.
First impressions: she is sweet, smart, sane, sturdy, and simply stupendous. She has quickly learned where to poop, following my good example. (This is very much to FarmWife's relief.) She has given the children many patient and affectionate nuzzles. She has demonstrated that she loads willingly in a Vanagon, rides nicely across the miles, and behaves kindly towards goats and other small creatures. Since I, Fenway Bartholomule, am rather a lot larger than she is, we are getting to know one another over the fence today.
