With all the stress she’s in, I don’t think the meat would be very good, but I’ll let them be the judge of that.
Stress causes the meat to be tough and not good. When we bought from the Youth Fair I went tot he judging and took notes on the animals. We always chose a steer that was calm and docile, and sometimes "over conditioned" (too fat) for the tastiest meat. LOL

Hopefully the ewe will retain the prolapse at least until she gives birth. :fl Congratulations to Dr. Dana for taking what she learned from Sage hill and applying it. That is what this forum is so wonderful at doing - helping others! As well as just giving all of us a lot of fun and friends.

I called @Ridgetop yesterday evening. We discussed the prolapse ewe. She convinced me that could sew up the ewes vulva to keep the prolapse in.

Ridgetop; Oh! It’s so EASY! Just get a curved needle and dental floss. Spray her lady parts with lidocaine sunburn spray and she won’t feel a thing!

Yeah, right.

So I texted the couple, told them I would care for the ewe, bring her to me. I assured them that she would have the finest of accommodations, her very own Pallet Palace!

I made no promises, but told them I would try my best for live lambs. They were relieved, they really want the best for her, they want the lambs, but both work long hours and just can’t be there for her.

He took the vet wrap off her this morning, I probably had it on too tight. She immediately peed and pooped and yes, popped her prolapse right back out.

We unloaded her, put her in her private suite and gave her water. He admired my Pallet Palaces. LOL he said he throws away pallets and I can have them. @Ridgetop if you want pallets, I can get you all you want. You can set hay on them.

A neighbor who is a nurse, does the prolapses on their cattle, and she came over to guide me through it. She washed off and pushed back in the red wad of uterus, a little bigger than a softball. Chase came over too, he held the ewe. Nurse neighbor lad a vial of lidocaine and gave shots of it n the ewe’s vulva. Then we sprayed her back end with the sunburn stuff. And I stitched that poor ewe up.

I gave her a shot of B Complex and half a dozen squirts of Nutridrench. I gave her a wad of alfalfa, some Bahia hay, her own feed that my friend brought for her and called it good. She has been eating, she has drank, so far, so good.

Yay You! It's always amazing the things we can do "when we have to." You did well. (I know you know this already.) Just be sure to get those stitches outta there before she delivers!
They are ordering a prolapse harness and spoon. Having it delivered here to me. I’ll cut stitches out and give her a new thing to hate.
