Bottle lambs happen

We’ve had a mixed lambing season with seven live lambs and two that didn’t make it.  The count is 4 ewes and 3 rams.  As happens sometime, we had an experienced ewe reject one of her twins.  We tried to see if we could convince another ewe to take him on (called grafting), but without success.  And so…we introduce Norbert: 

We will bottle feed him until we are able to wean him and move him back into the flock.  He’s a feisty little guy with quite the voice!

The dogs seem to be taking it all in stride: 

Poco is very protective of Norbert and will often not allow Pharaah near them. 

Norbert does enjoy cuddling up with Pharaah the ‘herding’ dog!
