what a 'bummer'
This morning I went out and fed him at 8.30 and by 9 am Frank had brought him to the house, and I fed him another cup of Misty's milk. For the next five hours I had put four cups of milk into him. Frank kicked his mama out of the barn and now we have a bummer-a bottle baby.
The ewe had a bad bag which developed last year.I think Clover is close to 10 years of age. Bad thing about where we live, is we are 7 hours away from the closest sheep auction. So I kept her. So with a bad udder, and no desire to nurse her baby, even with me making her, leaves him an orphan.
Well, the good thing about all this, is, I don't have to make cheese anymore! Pin It
