Maggie and Moss are keeping me busy.
It's been very busy here. I have had little time to write anything much. Maggie had a very hard delivery and we almost lost her to milk fever. She is slowly getting better after allot of vetting and much TLC, She was unable to take care of her lamb Moss so we are raising Moss in the house on milk replacer. Between the lamb and Maggie I am a bit spent. Maggie is finally eating and drinking on her own and we have stopped the drenches and injections. Hopefully she can take in enough now to gain back the weight she lost. Maggie got her head stuck in a livestock panel five days before she went into labor. She did it at night and so was trapped for about 9 hours before I found her. She fought hard the whole time and that is why she had nothing left when it was time to lamb. She was unable to push so I had to go in and pull the wee ewe lamb by hand.
