Katmoget,smirslet ...what about the body markings of white ,black and tan? She has a very soft fluffy fleece.
And this is the now infamous Sweet Gum With her darling FIRST lamb,Grace
Nine days after delivering Grace we found Sweet gum with afterbirth hanging out her back end and this little guy standing alone in the middle of the pasture baa-ing his heart out...
No one would claim him. No one else had signs of a recent birth so we forced S.G. to give up some colostrum,hopefully, she had some but she fought us terribly. This little guy went from ewe to ewe only to be butted away. Well, you all know the rest of the story, of course, he's in the kitchen nice and warm and being fed by THIS mama every few hours. We were hoping one of the other girls would deliver soon so we could try to graft him on but no one is obliging and as each day goes by I'm sure that will be much more difficult.
Has anyone else ever had this situation before ? Is this a separate conception or a late ejecting twin? Grace, the first lamb was 6lbs. Sir Nigel (the rejected ram lamb) was barely 3lbs. Any ideas??
