Chillin’ on the couch

This 7 day old lamb was rejected by her mother.  She is a twin and for whatever reason, the mom only wanted one.  I found her in very rough shape.  These little lambs have a small body size and cannot go without food for very long before their system starts to shut down in the cold.  She’s warming up on the couch with an electric blanket.  First bummer (bottle) lamb of the year.  She will be fed 4 times a day with goat’s milk that I have frozen from last year.  Prognosis is good!IMG_0340
