Notable Midwifery tales:
Bit tired tonight (the dogs barking at the foxes at Stupid O’Clock don’t help) so this will be shorter than yesterday!
Two English Leicester ewes had lambed this morning. I suspect they are actually twin sisters….. Each had a single and there was a ewe lamb and a ram lamb.
Then a couple of Drysdale ewes popped out their offspring. 🙂
In the shed tonight I thought that the fostered Castledale lamb was starting to get a wee bit whiffy downwind so decided to try swapping the pelt for a proper jacket. “Mum” decided it was a bit strange but it was still smelly so must be her girl!! (Thankfully!) Expecting some bad weather tomorrow and the little one is not a Drysdale that her “mum” thinks she is!
Little one is moving better now (not weighed down!) and should go ahead in leaps and bounds. Literally. 😉
Have decided to call the Drysdale “mum”, Boadicea. She’s a tough one….. 🙂
Bubba though..? I might need some help. 😉
