From the last post you know that there are three ewes in the nursery under watch. We really thought Crimson was going to lamb next, she showed all the signs; head in the air, lip pulled back, turning to look at her belly, lambs rolling around conspicuously getting into position, pawing, pacing, straining, the whole nine yards. Then Misty started straining. I sat out there for a bit last night until I realized nothing was going to happen very soon, and went to bed.
This is what I found this morning.
I was so worried about this ewe last night. Misty was the first to have stiff legs. As hard a time as she had getting up I was afraid she was too weak and would have a hard time delivering. This is only her second lambing. She had twins the first time. So I gave her a B complex boost, 5 cc's in the buttocks, and apparently, wether I helped or not, she did a bang up job :)
Going to have to keep an eye on the lambs to make sure they are all getting plenty to eat, and will probably supplement them anyway. I was surprised at their coloring; they are a chocolate brown!
So, anyone out there know how to get a suckling lamb to take a bottle too?
