Any day now

Limerick, my Shaela colored ewe. Looks like she will lamb this month! LOL My bred ewe's are all doing well their lambs appear to be growing!

Tess's lamb is still alive. Sleepy not standing will baa to me. I told people she had died a few days back, I gave up. Baby Tess has other ideas and doesn't want to be the victim of a necropsy. The longer she lives the more this looks like selenium deficiancy. Years ago I had floopy dairy goat kids that recovered after a week to ten days with seleniun and vitamin E. But they weren't blind. I'll keep working with her and hope this is it. All "ewe's in waiting" received Bo-Se and B Complex last week to cover all bases. Tess was one of them and she lambed 36 hours after. Her baby is the one still alive. Maybe!

Selenium? Do you think so? I sure hope it is that simple and you can fix it. Cute babies!

All fingers are crossed. Wouldn't it be nice if the answer were selenium. Toes crossed too~

Mim, about your comment on my blog; I talked to someone who asked if these babies were out of a new ram, I told him they were and he sugested it was a genetic disorder. Sorry I didn't share that with you, I was just hopeing it was thiamin :(
