When a lamb is really down and out, but not bad enough to bring back to the house, we will have a heating under the lamb so they are getting heat on both sides. A little heat often brings back a weak lamb.
Here are some cute close-ups of some of the lambs that are between a day and a week old.
This lamb is probably about a month old. He and a couple ewes are eating snow.
This lamb with the big ears is a Dorset cross. We used a ram from Pennsylvania whose sire was from Australia. The farm which we bought the ram from imported the semen from Australia and use AI (artificial insemination) to breed their flock. High tech sheep breeding. So that ram's progeny have an Australian grandpa. Cool huh? I love the big long ears. The lambs this year are his first and we will see how they do on our land.
On the book front, I am receiving a large shipment of books from the warehouse this evening so I will be packing and shipping on Monday and all next week. If I can do it, I should have all orders out next week. Fingers crossed. Thank you so much for all the orders everyone.
