WE HAVE A KICKER!!
A ewe lambed on Friday night, and I had a feeling she was a bit leery of nursing her newborns (that she loved BTW)...
It doesn't happen often, but when it does... you try EVERYTHING to convince a ewe to feed her lambs.
So in this video, you get to see first hand how frustrating, exciting, then back to irritating it can be... A rollercoaster of emotion.

I missed this video when you first put it up but coming from a cow/multi-calf background, we had hobbles for cows that were 'difficult' and occasionally ran out of hobbles and used twine to bind the cow's hocks together so if she tried to lift a leg to kick, the standing leg kept her from completing the kick. You need to know your knots though so you can quickly release the hobble when they are finish nursing or if anything should go awry. You can't count on getting a knife in place to cut the legs free.

Put a broom handle into the cage on the other side of the ewe so she can't move her leg forward. You have control of pressure so she doesn't fall over the broom handle. This will force her to slow the feedings. I've seen this done with cattle too. After that, she is a likely candidate for the market. To much work and that is taking away from others that may need it

I was curious so I'm sharing my curiosity. Google says: Colostrum is a breast fluid produced by humans, cows, and other mammals before breast milk is released. ... Colostrum promotes growth and health in infants and newborn animals, but research shows that taking bovine colostrum supplements may promote immunity, help fight infections, and improve gut health throughout life.

I think the ewe is kicking when they are trying to find the teats because its udder is super full and swollen. It’s uncomfortable and having the lambs banging away on it makes it worse. That’s why once they are on they seem to do ok just getting them on is the problem. I would milk her out all the way and only feed the lambs half of a feedings worth. That way when the udder is filling back up the lambs can keep it from getting over full. I do it to ewes and my beef cows when they are kicking their babies off.

Maybe try tying her back legs to the rain wit a halter on. She won't be able to move and it might help to do it a couple times, she should get used to it. I know dairy farmers do it

Hi Sandi, I have recently gotten hooked on your videos! We don't do lambs, or sheep, but I love learning new things about different versions of farming. I am wondering as far as breeding goes how many chanced do you give an ewe before you ship her off? We breed show rabbits which is 100% different, but usually a doe gets 3 strikes and then she's out. So still births would be 1 strike, if she doesn't have babies in the nest box with her next litter we would give her 1 last try. When you have mom's who have stillborns, or abortion, or refuse to let babies nurse how many chances do you give that ewe?

Have you tried vanilla essence - some on her nose and some on her lambs? I have seen a ewe reject her own lambs for 6 weeks before realising they were her’s.

I was going to ask a ton of questions all to do with stanchions, hobbling, hot compressing until the colostrum is drained, pre-milking, mastitis but I see the ladies just below or above my comment all chimed in. I hope by encouraging the ewe to bear it for a couple of days, these two little lambs will latch and drain her out. 👏 Edit: Maybe distract the ewe with her favorite treat as well?

Tie both rear legs back to the corner of the pen where the pen is stronger, halter her head. Or hobble both rear legs together so she can't raise them enough to kick. It's a problem though because like what you're saying, the babies get used to your voice and associate your presence with food. Might be best to just bottle feed them if things don't turn around very soon. Better to safe guard the lambs. You might want to consider culling that ewe if she won't feed her babies.

Tie the hind legs, both of them so that they can milk her and perhaps she's got mastitis? Squeeze the milk and let the scent remain on her so they can smell where to go? Not sure. Poor things.

I've known a sheep farmer to flip the ewe and put the lambs on. After a few times they all catch on and usually mom's alright. I have also seen them put in stantion and had their back legs tied back, not drastically and not for a long time, just long enough to allow the lambs to have a feed.

Will the ?problem? ewe that has twins, she won't nurse, will she be culled? Is this issue an with hormone imbalance---can she be giving a hormone shot to get her brain to work so to speak? or is this her first lambing and she simply is an experience ewe? Will she be culled out because she has no maternal instincts so speak?

Oh for the love of all things, If youtube had their way, our kids will all grow up uneducated about the most natural things in this world such as birth. Really, Sandi, I suggest getting Patreon. You'll at least still get money without having to worry about cutting footage out or censoring it.

If the kicking ewe (as you said) otherwise loves her lambs than the problem is most likely that she is experiencing pain. At this point, she associates latching on with pain. You can practically see her cringe when the lambs (and/or you) approach her udder. Experienced folks on here have already given some fantastic options, so no need to give those again. I just hate the thought of her being culled for having pain during her first lambing. She is loving towards them, is fine once they have latched on, and produced two good looking lambs. I am definitely in favor of giving a ewe with so many good qualities a second chance. Note: I admire the care you give to your sheep and I'm sorry if this came off in too negative a manner. I am not a sheep farmer. My occupation is with horses and we sometimes see this in first time mares. While we may have to halter and hobble them, we try to provide a pleasant distraction (such as an apple, peppermint, or sweet feed) so the experience is not remembered as a traumatic event in the future.

we strip a little milk out and put it on the teat. put the teat in the lambs mouth. tie the leg back. if that didnt work milk her out completely and see if that works. last chance idea my granddad would said punch her very time she kicks the lamb. ive only done it once and we save 3 lambs. not for the feint hearted and most differently last resort. good luck
