It turns out that Clover was having trouble keeping up with her quads. I had been supplementing the weaker one since birth. But at 2 1/2 weeks we intervened and started supplementing them all. Twice daily they get an extra boost of milk. They are responding by growing like weeds! This is our first experience bottle feeding. I wouldn't say I would want to do it all the time but it has been an enlightening experience! It certainly does make for friendly lambs!
Here is Veronica's (BooBoo's) little girl. She is 12 hours old here. BooBoo is a great Mom! Below is the new babe checking out the "bucket". Haaa
Our watchful guardian dogs! Josie taking a much deserved nap after guarding all night. Jerimiah just doing what "big sister' does!
Ahhhhhh we are done lambing season! Veronica (BooBoo) delivered an 8 pound ewe lamb last night at 8:30pm. She is strong and healthy, they are doing great.
Lambing is such a joyful yet stressful time. I anxiously await its arrival and am so very thankful when it is complete. Our total was 14 healthy lambs this year. We are expanding slowly and next year will show an increase in our flock! I am already looking forward to it......... ah well maybe after a good nights sleep!
Thank you for visiting our farm! We raise purebred Finnsheep. My husband and I both have agricultural
