Well, it's been a while...That momma with mastitis on one side last year? She had one ewe lamb this spring at 8.5lbs, the biggest in our group! The little one had a rough start, wasn't able to walk or lift her head. We got her up and at 'em after 24 hours. To top off her woes, momma's mastitis went to both sides of her bag this year. Hence a bottle baby. We found her a great home with a neighboring rancher, we wish April the best life and many babies of her own.
Meanwhile, Momma will be retired to pet, non-breeding status and head matriarch to her sister moms.
