First Lamb

Athena lambed ahead of schedule. Unfortunately the biggest twin (12.2 lbs) was dead when I went out this morning. Although it looks as though it was born alive (or at least was full term) there was something wrong with it. It’s belly was full of fluid so I think there was probably a congenital problem with it and it never could have survived.DSC_8682

  1. I’m glad Athena has at least one baby to nurture. Sad about the bigger lamb. As a shepherd you probably see this more often than you’d like, but it’s probably something you never get used to. But cheers! for the new baby!! Will it stay black?
