Eweling doing great.

Papaya × Ross
Surprise, Ross is a spot carrier! Or did we figure that out last year? I don't remember...
Two ewelings; a normal sized black and a tiny head spotted. Fed them colostrum and the black was able to get up and nurse. The spotted I'll have to go out in a few hours and bottle again, then hope in the morning she's figured it all out and gotten strong enough. She did try, but too lazily to believe she'll be okay without another bottling.

Looking at how hollow she is vs Yamcha, I went in to try and feel for another lamb. Didn't find anything, so, hoping she's just fat! Her eweling is very strong and bouncy.

Second feeding for the tiny eweling. After her bottle, she managed to latch onto mom. Unsure if she got any milk, though. As she's not a strong suckler. Put coats on them both for the night.

The spot lamb is still crappy and behind. Does get up and tries to nurse, but just awful at it. Bottle fed, but doesn't take in much. 2nd feeding for the day, 3rd in a few hours.

No new lambs.

Lamb count-
3 black ewes, 1 spot ewe, 1 white ram.
Single, twin, twin.


You built a new house?
Yeah...
🤣 yeah, we figured it out when it was almost done!!! 😱 Rest of us would have been shouting with glee at start. 🤷🙄
Nothing but stress and subpar work. I wanted to *move away* and he was "too attached" to the old house, supposedly, so a new house was his fix.
Anyone want a gut job house?
