Lambing question about amniotic sac


Recommended Posts

One of our ewes gave birth to a ram lamb this morning. We didn't see the amniotic sac break before/during the birth - just the mucous, and then a very quick birth (this is her 3rd time lambing, last year she had twins). After she had licked the lamb for about 10 minutes an amniotic sac came out and broke. We assumed this meant she was going to have another lamb, but nothing happened for about an hour so I did an internal exam. This is only my 2nd time doing one, and as far as I can tell there isn't another lamb. Has anyone seen the amniotic sac be expelled after the lamb is born instead of before? Mom and baby both seem to be doing well..
