Pa-paw's Baby Lamb

While spending a few extra days at my parent's after the new year, they had a ewe that didn't take the baby; therefore, it came in the house to get bottles!  Dallas loved to help out and pet the baby lamb.  Reba wasn't quite as sure, but she did like petting it a time or two.

Until next time...

Aww!! How cute!! Okay, I'm going to show my knowledge of sheep... is that common? For a mom to reject her baby like that? How does the poor thing stay warm with no one to cuddle up next to?

Missy, No it is not common. Every once in a we just have one that does not take their babies. This babie's mommy is a first time mother and she just didn't act very motherly. Some times it is because they have very little or no milk for their lambs. We just try to give the lambs a shot at making it in the world. As far as the lamb staying warm, she has two heat lamps in her pen to keep her nice and toasty!! I hope this helps!!

The pictures you have Rajean are really cute!! Give the kids a hug and kiss for me!!
