After a long night we saw this woodpecker this morning near our barn. We got some alfalfa hay and CMPK in Rosie this morning. She is doing better but not great. She is eating, drinking and standing some but not normal amounts. We are hoping she does not relapse. Marjie, her calf, seems to be doing well.
While I was doing the animal chores I noticed our 50%Gotland-50% Finn ewe Tanya Tucker was in early labor. I prepared a lambing pen for her and went in for lunch. When I had my lunch almost made, a half hour had passed and I thought I should check on her. She was hollering and pushing hard so I helped her bring the head out and she delivered this ram lamb.
Isn’t he cute? He looks a little like his Shetland father Lewis. He also stood and nursed well. Everyone is doing well. Two more does and 2 more ewes to go! So far no losses this year, although it got close last night. And I got to eat my lunch.
