We got 17 lambs in the meantime. Yesterday Daffne gave birth to two cute and healthy looking lambs. Today we had an emergency with Hernie, the lamb went out head first and was too big to just let the rest follow. I had to chase the other sheep off the pasture, because Hernie wanted to move away from me. I bribed her with sheep food, grabbed her, threw her down and tried my best to get the lamb out alive. I couldn’t pres the head back in, it was already swollen. So I had to search inside for a leg. Finally found a knee, pulled the leg out and then the rest followed. But it was already too late and now I am tired. I hope Hernie is okay. It can take a bit to find out. The feet can damage the mother inside. But I am carefully optimistic about her.
I made the photos some days ago.
On February 14 Stirnlöckchen gave birth to a very big boy. All went well though she is over ten years old. I helped to pull him out.
