Favorite Sheeps Twins, Fingers Crossed

On the morning of January 17, 2011, I walked into the barn to see Favorite Sheep with two new lambs.  She picked the worst corner of the barn to have them, right under a drafty spot.  With temperatures still well below normal (today was -21c) the lambs had bits of ice on their wool from where Favorite licked them to dry them off (ironic I know). 

Due to the fact that Favorite had a stroke a few years back she cannot control her saliva in the same way, and it often runs out of her mouth, sometimes it is rather smelly containing parts of semi-digested food.  This was all over her lambs.  I got a towel and did the best to dry them off, before bottle feeding one of the tiplets born the week earlier

(her face is particularly swollen here due to just eating)

Favorite had a girl and boy (a ewe lamb, and a ram lamb).  The ram lamb has the same marking on  his back as his mom, a black dot.  You cannot see it on her because her long wool has bleached white. 


After I got everyone fed and watered, I went into the house for my own breakfast, returning to check on them (and bottle feed again) after lunch.  Well.. by the time I went back to check I soon saw one lamb, but the other was missing.   I spotted him curled up and shivering against a wall. 

He was a house lamb for an hour at that point, I brought him in to warm him up, and even gave him a bit extra to drink to give him engery.  I did not get pictures as I was rather worried about him at the time.  The house cats quite enjoyed the novelty animal in the house!

He is back with is mom now, in the warmest stall of the barn, she had been looking for him the whole time he was in the house (I could hear her from the barn when I went outside).  I have my fingers crossed that he will do well and get strong, I will be checking again later today of course.
