As you can see in the photo, this is a very soon after birth photo, sorry about the bit graphic shot, as you can see momma has not finished passing and she did have a bit of tearing when she put out that BIG baby.. Great full bag up on the momma, lots of milk for sure and the baby nursed so hard it had a milk froth..
However I wanted to put this photo up for a different reason.. that color.. its a clear sign that this lamb was overdue, I thought that momma should have gone a day or two earlier and it looks like I was right. Birth fluid color can tell you a number of useful things if you watch for them. After its all cleaned up and fluffy and white, I will not be able to show off that late birth color..
Making a few more Knitted Sheep Collars these days, they work so well and they are so easy to make.. a few minutes and I have a custom thick, soft and wearing collar
I have a chocolate Hen, I have a blue hen coming from a friend and I am looking to add two more hens in the next month, my drakes are black, chocolate or blue, some bared some not..
