Last week one of my husband's dorper ewes had a lamb. It was up but wobbly when I found it, still a bit wet. The ewe was mothering it well, but the ram was trying to headbutt the lamb repeatedly, tossing it end over end.
I fed them, hoping it would distract the ram, which it did long enough for them to finish eating, and he went back to bothering the lamb.
My husband and I put the ewe and lamb (it's a girl!) in the little sheep shed and put fencing across the doorway temporarily. After a few days together, they are now back out with the small flock and doing fine.
Isn't this the cutest thing ever? I can understand now why some of my friends like raising sheep better than raising goats. I like goats better, but I admit that lambs are a lot easier and hardier than goat kids.
