A Sad Sad Day of Announcements
I'm afraid my pride and joy Ewe had her little lamb pre-mature this morning and it didn't survive. The vet said it appeared to be at least two weeks early. Poor Seven. This stresses me out because this was her first year as a breeding ewe so I hope this isn't a bad sign for next year as well. The vet checked her out and said she was 90% sure Seven was fine and gave her a couple shots and left one for in the morning. Seven seems ok now and is eating and moving around in fact she seems normal so I hope this was just a fluke. She didn't seem upset during her shearing and was easy to handle in fact up until this morning I was sure she was the perfect breeding ewe.
Oh well these things happen. And no I did not take a picture of the poor lamb to show you guys I am NOT Carolyn... Jeesh. :)
We still have 15 other ewes waiting their turn and by the looks of things it won't be long now.
Almost as sad is that I have had to move Oddy's Blog By Other Means down into the section of shame for posting pictures of that Peter Jackson (and his crony Feminist co-writers) She-Elf abomination Tenuvial (Sp) they created to destroy "The Hobbit" storyline.
This is an infraction almost as bad as pandering to internet chicks and posting pictures of naked Men. In some ways worse. So I have had to put Oddy's blog in time out. However I am convinced Oddy did it for honest reasons so By Other Means won't be down there long.
Just a sad day all around.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
