    ruptured prepubic tendon in sheep

    @Ridgetop , I am not sure, I asked the vet that. They were formed perfect, she said it did not look like they died during labor, she mentioned that sometimes you can tell they were stressed , and would have a lot of meconium staining. These did not. We think they died before labor even started...

    ruptured prepubic tendon in sheep

    All 3 lambs had to be pulled, all were dead. Brie was put down shortly after and went very peacefully. I am devastated that we lost her and those lambs, but I take comfort in the fact that she is no longer in pain 💓 I hope you dont mind if I post a picture of Brie. I love you sweet girl. You...

    ruptured prepubic tendon in sheep

    We had a great talk with the vet, and went over all of our options. The ewe is terminal, that we know, its just how to proceed with getting the lambs so they have the best chance , if they are alive. We decided after much discussion to induce her, she has been given a steroid shot, she should...

    ruptured prepubic tendon in sheep

    The vet said she can come out monday afternoon. At this point, she is going down hill fast. I have been giving her Propylene glycol ( I don't know if i spelled that right) as per my conversation with the vet. She is starting to smell really bad. At this point I don't have a whole lot of hope for...

    ruptured prepubic tendon in sheep

    No problem, I will make sure to change the thread title. Well, yesterday she struggled to walk, she kept falling over. Its the most heart breaking thing to watch. I am going to send my vet a message today, with some pictures and ask her what to do. I will ask her how much the C-sections are...

    ruptured prepubic tendon in sheep

    Thank you so much for your reply. When I get a chance I will go take a look at that thread. I'm hoping that it is not the case, but I have a feeling it is :( this is her first lambing, I had no idea it could happen to first timers.

    ruptured prepubic tendon in sheep

    I have a ewe due early January. She has looked pretty much the same recently, big belly on both sides. Just recently her stomach has completely changed. One side looks like is not pregnant at all, and the opposite side is huge and very low hanging. She struggles to get around, walking is hard...

    The thing is, he is not ramming it, just pushes on it. and drags his sides across it . He knows the weak points and try to push the corners apart :idunno

    I wanted him for a show ram, and most of them are very tall. I'll keep him till next summer to see how he grows. I'm trying to add in more height and this guy is not fitting the bill right now lol

    I'm trying to hold out hope that this guy will get taller. His sister is long,tall and lean. He , though built nice in my personal opinion he is short :lol: fingers crossed for a growth spurt. He makes me think of an english bull dog, very wide and short 😂 His sister... They are both out of the...

    We finally got some rain last night, boy do we need it. I cannot believe how dry it is here. I dont think we have had to mow the lawn in over a month. The pasture is not handling it well, we have made sure to keep rotating so that some of the grass gets a chance to grow. Its so dry the grass...
