Sad sheep news

On Friday the 16Th, my sheep Zippy had twin lambs. I never lad eyes on them alive. I think the other sheep had been mean, or something like that. However it happened, they are died. It makes me so sad to think that maybe there might have been something I could have done if I would have gone out to the barn sooner. I really didn't think that she would have been the first ewe to give birth. I really didn't think that she was going to have twins also. Normally the first year they lamb they have twins. I just can never get over a death when I don't know what happened. Well now I have the last two ewes in different pens so that they won't bug each other when they're lambing, or hurt each others lambs when they come. I know that there's a reason God let this happen even if I don't know what it is. I have gotten a little better so I'm not as sad. Tho I still sometimes still feel like crying, but not as often.


  1. I'm really sorry!!! That must have been so sad. One time I had a baby bunny nest in my yard and they didn't make it. I cried about it and honestly I'm still sad. Hang in there.

  2. Oh a bunnies HOW sad! :( Yeah I'm hanging in still, but it's hard to get over something like that. Thanks
