It has been a long day today. Sawyer and I have been outside all today with a ewe that lambed today and doctoring another lamb that was born yesterday that has scours. To top things off it has been really cold and blowy sitting up in the barn all day long. The ewe is a first time mom and had a lovely black grey ewe lamb, she wasn’t too sure she was quite ready to become a mom and sorta snuffed the baby to begin with. She lambed right in the middle of the breeze way of the barn where it was…very breezy and cold. I wanted to move baby and mom to a lambing jug and out of the cold, but I didn’t want to scare mom off. So we just stood and watched mom decide whether or not she was going to accept her new addition. She just stood there for the longest time dazed and just staring at her lamb as it crawled toward her, she finally decided to take a little lick and then another and another. Finally she decided that licking this little thing might be ok. After it looked like she was going to accept the little lady we moved her to the jug where she finished cleaning and drying her off. She even let her nurse eventually and both are now doing quite well.
