Lamb 2020

1st baby of the season

I am no expert on sheep raising, my family has been raising sheep for personal use for about ten years now. Each year there is always something to challenge us. The first two births were fine, the three lambs are doing well.

The third mother had twins, but we did not know that her milk never came out. Her babies were drinking and all looked fine. Sadly we lost them.

The latest mother also had two, one is weak and we are helping it drink from its mother by sitting the mother upright and placing the baby to her. With a bit of research looks like it has hypothermia, the mother had to have cleaned one well while the other got too cold. Today it was in the house for two hours in blankets. Praying well will go well.
