Baby lambs have arrived!

April 13, 2017

We have 25 new lambs and counting this week, so the barn is hopping. Bob makes sure they all get off to a good start by milking the ewes and giving each lamb a belly full of colostrum through a stomach tube. Any weak triplets may get a bottle, too.

One ewe with triplets wasn't eating, so we let her outside the barn into the green grass and sunshine. She recovered and is doing better.
