Notable Midwifery tales:
Sometimes waiting the last lamb/s to be born seems to take forever.
No lambs today….. The remaining ewe has been given a(nother) pep talk about “not cooking them for too long”. She chewed her cud and walked off so I would suspect that’s similar to “the finger”. Humph.
That means …. more random lambspam photos for tonight because the only other item of excitement for the day was taking Floss to the vet this afternoon. (She’s running a temperature).
