It’s been a busy and weather weird February and beginning of March! At the start of February we had a winters worth of snow fall in 2 days! 3.5 feet fell burying the farm and the animals!
Just prior to the worst of the snow – we had a surprise lambing – via c-section! One of our most seasoned ewe’s went into labor and was unable to progress. We took her to our veterinary who was able to perform a successful c-section.
Unfortunately, we did loose one of the twins, but the remaining lamb is thriving! We are supplementing with milk replacer as Thumbelina was not producing enough milk.
The last week of February and first week of March, our sows delivered their litters of piglets! When this was planned at the end of last year – we were thinking the time of year would be more ‘Spring’ like…oops!
We will begin the rest of our lambing season in the next two weeks – here’s hoping for some grass to be poking through!
If you are interested in pigs, piglet, and/or lambs – please reach out and get on our lists!
