Just in case you were wondering how I got this bottle lamb, her mother was silly and thought that it was a dog or something, staring at it and shying away from it as if it would bite her, so I took the lamb.
she got protective and would snap at the other Rat Terriers and the cats when they came near it. We couldn't tell if she was mothering it or saving it for her own dinner.
Martin would like some warm milk too!
This is my second bottle lamb, her mother had bad milk and is headed for the auction. The lamb couldn't stand up so we were going to milk some of the colostrum out of the mom for the lamb to get her started and that is when we noticed the bad milk. Some of our ewes are getting very old.
