KnottyClarence Posted April 29, 2013 Report Share Posted April 29, 2013 I have a cheviot ewe, about 5-6 years old, lambed well in previous years. Lambed last week, a single ram lamb, and her udder is absolutely huge. Captured her and looked closely. Udder is not hot, or red, looks like normal color, like the other girls. Expressed milk out of both teats, and the milk looked good, white and healthy. The lamb is doing well, she lets him nurse without trouble. Her eyes are clear and bright, appetite good, drinking water and moving around and hanging out with the other sheep. But we're talking "like a holstein", difficulty walking with it. Definately larger on the left than the right, if I look down from over top of her. One teat hangs below, the other is on the right side. They do look a bit off in placement. But teats normal sized, cool, and productive. Will call the vet if need be, that's what I'm wondering. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
