I was thinking about the cows the other day, they are such curious critters, I think they have a lot in common with the average 2 yo some days. One of the things on a farm with cows is to make sure all metal is picked up, all screws and nails ... Read more

Just to mention, my sheep are all purebred Romneys, they are a duel purpose sheep in the long wooled category. Originally from England, they were called Romney Marsh or Kent. They are a major sheep in New Zealand. Romney's did well in the ma... Read more

Leila's twins are doing good, I did give a repeat penicillin shot to the one that aspirated during birth, still a little rattling in there. They are gaining weight quite well and have settled into 3 12 oz feedings of lamb milk replacer. I did ... Read more

I think both Leila and I are glad the lambs are here! She went into mild labor earlier in the day with occasional contractions, and started the real work some time after 11pm. I kept an eye on her all day, they really don't like being watched ... Read more
