LAMB UPDATE! This guy was up and nursing on his own this morning! He is still wobbly in the knees, but this is a great sign that he is getting better...we are hoping it keeps on improving🐑 #vhflambing2019 ...
Our second ewe delivered three boys this morning. She (Pip) dropped the first on her own in the snowy pasture, then after getting her into the nursery she labored for a good bit before I pulled her next babe due to it presenting breech. Then came a third who was also breech and needed pulled. #1 and #3 were up and nursing right away, #2 seems to have suffered some nerve damage and is struggling to walk. After consulting MSU’s livestock line I am hoping it is just temporary. Until then I’m making frequent visits to the pasture to help him up and nurse. Needless to say, it’s been a day...no two ewes lamb the same and we are always learning here! #vhflambing2019 @ Verdant Hollow Farm
April 12, 2019 Last week, I heard a fluttering come from the wood stove in our home as Russell, Casey, and I were playing gin rummy. We went over to investigate and saw a little starling beating its wings in the ashes, wondering what hell she had found herself
