Sue is trying to ignore the fact that a lil lamb has snuggled up beside her for a short time.
Last night I nursed two lambs along in my mud room. They perked up after being warmed and fed with a syringe, but I am sad to report that they did not make it. For some reason, they refused to suck on their own, even with much coaxing. This is one of those hard truths in raising livestock. We do our part, we give aid, but ultimately, the animal has to have a will to live.
On a happy note, one of the bum lambs got a new mama and all is well with him.
