Anyway, She went to a place where she can get all the hay and grass she needs and a bit of feed too. I am happy that she will be some place safe. I am also going to get rid of our three bred Heifers but I am keeping B'Day as part of our farm. She is one big Baby. She still takes a bottle and she is so gentle you can ride her. Think of that picture as a farm memory for some city kid ... "The day a rode a cow" LOL
When we got home from there it was time to eat dinner, feed the lambs again and move Quapaw inside for the night again. We are worried about Seneca's Twins and are working hard to keep Mom and Babies together but as of Right now Quapaw is losing weight daily. He is the littlest lamb that has been born so far. His sister, Chickasaw showed progress today and is looking much better after her stay in the house last night. We have no issues with Seneca taking them back in the mornings but we are worried she is having an issue with her milk even though we can't find any problems. Either she isn't making enough for two or something isn't right. Remember she is also 9 years old so her body is taxed with twins. We will return Quapaw in the morning and if Chickasaw continues to improve we will be supplimenting the two of them with bottles and only removing Quapaw. If however she shows signs of regression we will be pulling both every night to help them get stronger.
For those that don't know animals shiver to keep warm and with cold temps baby lambs can shiver off weight if we aren't careful. That is the reason we are weighing them each day. After they reach 15 lbs. We stop worrying so much and allow them to be lambs without us interfering all the time. Until then we are so on it ... LOL
The good news is that we have the lamb cam on in the inside pen so that everyone can stop by and check them out. By day it is just Cheyenne and feedings take place at 9 and 3 but by night the others can be seen when they join her. Make sure you check it out and leave us a comment and let us know you stopped by ... You can find the cam by clicking HERE!!
