Pam Wolf Posted March 30, 2015 Report Share Posted March 30, 2015 Went out this AM to find one ewe with twins dry and up and moving by her side. Noticed another ewe with a lamb's head out but nothing else. Fed the pigs (using the hot youngster) checked on the cows etc. At least all the stock is up by the house til the pasture greens a bit more. Finished up and went to check on the ewes. Put hot head up to check on ewes. Moved the twins on the ground to new pasture, and sure enough the lamb was still stuck decided to check her out. Mom was not going to help one bit!. Pulled out Bliss, got the ewe by herself and had Bliss hold her. Bliss was so gentle even when she had to nip the ewe's nose so I could finally catch her. About that time DH arrives to hold the ewe. No legs reach inside, a leg, start to pull it (the lam's head is more swollen than it should be-not good). bliss lies down to wait. Oops, a different head attached to that leg-hate that! In I go again, fishing for the right leg and pushing the overly eager 2nd lamb back inside, grabbing the right leg and getting lamb one out. Ewe appears exhausted. Lie lamb #1 on the ground and Bliss comes over to clean the head. She is so gentle with the lamb, licking the face/head while I work on #2. Get #2 out, #1 is doing OK, but not great, so work on it while Bliss works on #2. Give #1 to momma meanwhile Bliss is making sure #2 is going well. Give the lambs to the ewe and walk back to the house with Bliss. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
