Well, it is one of those crazy days on the farm.
I posted this morning that we arrived in the barn to a new lamb, who had been born in the night, and meandered into another animal pen away from mom. Well, he is doing well now. But, his mom’s udder is not filling up much and he therefore can not nurse. So, here is the cutest picture ever of my two favorite boys at present!
On other farm news, we had a jail break with the little baby goats. They were having a blast running around the center of the barn. I will show you a bunch of pictures below. However, the sad news is the beautiful little white doeling was enamored by the horse, as you will see in one of the pictures. Unfortunately, after I left the barn sometime this afternoon it looked like she got injured. I cant tell yet, but she is limping on a hind end and I think a horse may have stepped on her. Or, she got stuck sliding under the stall wall to get in with the horse. Hips can dislocate really easy when they are newborns. Anyway, I can not tell if it is a serioius injury or minor one. It will take a few days to assess. That is a very unfortunate thing. Then, one of my prized does got an abscess in her tooth. I will need to let it work its way out as I do not want to puncture it and cause problems with her eating and health while she is nursing three little ones.
Like all mornings at the farm, there were huge joys today and some sadness, seeing a little one hurt and a mama with a sore tooth. But, here you go on some of the cute pictures of the day along with other accomplishments we achieved today as well.
We had a new little ram lamb born this morning.
I hope you all enjoyed the photos!
