We lost another lamb yesterday. It was the second lamb of the Boreray/Suffolk triplets born on Tuesday. He seemed a little slow in the morning, and I was thinking that I’d take him some lambs milk in the afternoon to see if that helped. I checked up on him before lunch and he seemed fine. After lunch he was dead.
I’m really starting to think there may be an issue with the Boreray breeding. Hopefully the Mules in there are pregnant, and we’ll see something positive out of them, and obviously the Boreray ewes as well.
We’ve never lost three lambs during a season before and it’s rather upsetting.
