Acceptance in the field

Some people think babies come from storks, and sheep think lambs come from placentas - regardless of who birthed the little one. A placenta is a capsule that carries one into new life, and can even be the portal into another one shortly after that life begins. A tricky practice, yet it can be done. Grafting is the practice of covering a newborn animal in a placenta to trick a mother into accepting the newborn. This day, I was successful.
