Me milking Commander after her surprise twins

Me milking Commander after her surprise twins

Last Saturday afternoon, I answered the front door and was met by an American gentleman. Realizing I was still in my farm clothes which had spatters of blood on my shoulder after milking the cow that had twins, I immediately apologized saying “please excuse me, but we’ve just had twins”. He looked shocked, and immediately shook my hand and congratulated me. Initially I was wondering what his enthusiasm was all about, but it clicked that he must have thought my wife or partner had just had twins. He seemed a little disappointed when I told him that it was the cow that was just after having the twins.

It’s still making me smile when I remember the look on his face.
