More sad news, and a little fun news.

A few weeks ago my little lamb Zerubbabel died. It was so SAD. I know that this kind of thing happens, but he was doing so well it was SO weird. Then when he started getting sick it was about an hour then he was died. Well Asa his brother was REALLY sad....because sheep are flock animals. Well there was this little blind lamb that this man had. Well Ahaz he only made it a week before he died. I really don't know what happened he was fine the night before and in the morning he was found died.
Asa he's doing really well. It's so funny he thinks I'm his mom. I bring him out of his pen so he can run around a little. He doesn't run away. He stays within 5 feet of me. He won't let me out of his sight. He's so cute. Well today I wanted to do something fun with him. I took him an about a mile walk, and then we sat outside in our front yard with my dog and cat. I really have never given so much individual attention to one lamb without a reason, but it was fun.
Oh and yesterday I did a 4-H demo with him. There was this little 4 year old and Asa ran right up to her, and because her head was just a little higher then his. They had fun. He let the people look in his mouth and everything. I kinda like this little guy. More of a pet, but a pet I'm going to sell after he's 100 lbs. :)


  1. Sorry to hear of your losses. Some are just plain mysteries and never get figured out. If you're like me, I throw the whole sheep medicine cabinet at them and if they improve I'm never sure which thing fixed it and if they die I wonder what I missed giving them. Have you tried giving the blind lamb vitamin B shots? I had a triplet who went blind one year, gave her the shots and she improved. Good luck with Asa and how many lambs do you have left now? Let's hope they grow well and strong. Jami
