It was my birthday yesterday and what made it so sweet was when we got home from the caf. I went straight from the car to go and check on Sweet Maggie.......I quietly peeked into the pen with camera ready......just in case.......this is what I saw. A precious little baby. Only one, but that was okay. I was glad it was finally here.....safe with it's Momma!
He was almost all cleaned up by the time I got home. She was still licking on him....she was very gentle with him. My sis and I talked soon after and she said the names Spruce, Birch and something else. Can't remember the other name......but when she said Birch it was like that was perfect for him!!!!!
Momma's one side of her udder was huge. My farm friend Cheryl said she would come over today to check on them. In the morning she gave Lil' Birch colostrum. It helped. She gave Sweet Maggie some antibiotics and hopefully she will be feeling better soon. Another dose will be given on Thursday. Poor Momma. Cheryl emptied her full udder, that will help her also.
When I got home this evening Momma Sweet Maggie was lovin on her sweet baby. Absolutely love this pic.....needs to be in my sheep cards!!!!!!! Doesn't he have the sweetest face?
Cheryl came around 5 tonight to bring a bottle, goats milk and some Lamb Milk Replacer for Lil' Birch for Lil' Birch. He will still nurse on his Momma though. I am so thankful he is doing better. I love watching Cheryl with sheep. She is a real Shepherdess. I will keep you posted as to what is going on.
Tonight we are having a huge storm coming through, hail, winds, lightening, thunder and rain. We have asked for protection for our farm and thanking the Lord for the rain.
God bless you,
