    Sun hiding how thin she is, there's no muscle on her. Makes muscle injections really tricky...

    Got her in a sling to keep her upright and in sectioned off barn corner.
    Water, hay, grass pellet, 18% lamb pellet and a little camilid feed that has lots of molasses in it in 3 piles to choose from.
    She's been snacking every 5min or so. Was out there for almost an hour. Hopefully, she'll be able to keep herself fed and build energy and muscle now.
    Will put her down if I don't see improvement in 2-3 days.

    She's chewing cud!
    Hasn't done that in awhile.
    This is her "Uughh! Why are you here, to shove more stuff down my gullet? :rolleyes:" look.

    Let her down for the night to sleep and she proceeded to suffocate herself instead.
    RIP Tegan, born with no chance of a normal life.

    Vet came out to do a necropsy.
    She took many tissue samples to have sent out.
    Lots of barberpole worm, vet says that she was way too genetically weak & that I should avoid sheep related to her. So, now I know to avoid sheep from her line when I buy new sheep like the plague.
    Also had loose fluid in the body cavity, which I found a couple days ago.
    Old lung infection.
    Rest looked fine.

    Picture of barberpole worms, if you've never seen them before-

    I will do a final update once the results return.
