Today was ONE LONG DAY!
What started out peaceful and slow, turned into a day of wishing for more hands, and eyes on the back of my head!
I've officially adopted the quads as mom is still not even trying to stand...
I ran across the road to weigh market lambs to ship this week and had a snuggle with Billy the Kid!
And all afternoon was lamb after lamb after lamb!
Eventually, I had an opportunity to try to foster a couple of the quads... easier said than done.

Hi Sandi, we've tried triplets on ewes for the last 50 years with very limited success. And ours go out to grass so we are not housed like yours. It's still works much better to remove lambs so that the ewe has just 2 to look after with the extra ones being hand reared or fostered onto other ewes with 1 or 0 lambs. Everyone does much better like this. Also, with regards to feeding more corn/pellets. Personally if i feed more than for twins we get more prolapses so i just feed up to 1 1/2 pounds per head up to lambing, then 2 pounds per head afterwards. Look forward to you letting us know what you decide to do and how it turns out for you. Cheers

I wish I could work for you. Such a rewarding albeit hard job but it's just something real. I don't know which words would best describe what I mean but I wish I could work in farming. My back is quite messed up and I have to take pain medication but I would crawl into that barn if I had to. Can you tell I'm sick of retail? 🥴 Would you care to adopt me? I'll work for you 24/7 I do have a little boy, but we can just put him with the lambs. I'm sure he'd like the nanny 😆😂 jk I would love to live in canada though. To me, from what I've seen so far, it seems to be a mix between the us and europe, a lot reminds me of the us of course but a lot also really feels comparable to germany (where I'm originally from) I believe it's very hard to immigrate to canada or am I mistaken? Is it true that you have to learn french? I'm glad you seem to have gotten out of your funk. And about your ewes going down issue that you were pondering, I by no means am in any way qualified to speak on the matter but watching many of the goats kidding on other channels I watch, it seems like this year has been really off for farm animal births. Many complications across the board. Makes you wonder if it's just something in the air this year. And that by no means is meant jokingly in regards to the covid situation. But some years just seem to be weird for all farmers or maybe I'm just overthinking it but every channel I watch has had more issues than is normal for them. Keep well, hugs from massachusetts Oh, quick question because i just got to that part in the video, did you deliberately name ruby's lambs with r-names? I see that's a thing, crystal from blue cactus dairy goats always starts the kid's names with the first letter of the dam's name. I think that's a really fun concept, also makes it a bit easier to name because it's narrowed down a bit. She had people vote on a name for a goat and I was so happy she chose ruby (I was one of the people who put that name up) just such a pretty name. Sorry for the paragraph. Hope you get the time to read it, maybe while drinking some coffee 🙃☕

You might consider cutting back on fertility treatments multiples really demand allot of the mom... think better production of getting larger lambs rather than quantity

Are you going to be keeping the solid black lamb you had to nurse up? The miracle baby? I feel like he deserves a nice comfy life with lots of headpats. Also on the chapped lips point, a tip I learned is that after you brush your teeth, you should make sure to wipe your lips free of any toothpaste residue. It can REALLY dehydrate them if you leave any trace on there.

I think it's funny some moms don't really care who is climbing on them. As long as lambs that not hers don't try to nurse. She's just like "Ok, this is what moms are for. Let the kids play with their friends, I guess." Lol

Sandi you are completely correct about the correlation between fatness and birthing difficulties. Just like us Humans and pregnancy those of us who are fat/obese can face complications (speaking from experience). That ewe where you said it felt weird inside could be placenta previa. I thought that with the ewe that had blood everywhere. Am I correct in believing these ewes are bred every 6 months?

I remember hearing that when a sheep just lays down and gives up, and she just cant bother to try, there's nothing at all you can do to change her mind. Sheep really can give up the will to live, and die. On the other hand, there were so many adorable babies! The markings and color on them is beautiful.

For the ewes that are going down. If it comes to another undesirable end. Perhaps a necropsy may help provide information. Course this can be costly making it not feasible but maybe worth opening the conversation with your vet.

Hi, have you considered a Selenium deficiency as a cause for your downed ewes? I raise goats and had a problem one year with a doe who went down after having triplets, she had a retained placenta and very weak her back end. My vet had suggested that she might have a selenium deficiency because one of her kids was also weak and had the folded over feet (when they try to walk on that first joint instead of their hoofs) After giving my doe a dose of selenium she did get better and her strength returned. Since that instance I give my does a dose of selenium when breeding and then again just before kidding and I haven't run into the same problem again. Just some food for thought maybe? Love the videos and your dedication to your animals is an inspiration to me. Thank you.

I know you're a market sheep person, so having good lambs as pets isn't ideal... But could you keep Billy as a stud? He's such a sweetheart!

If you are a farmer you really can't start keeping breeding stock just because they are "sweethearts". You really, really have to control and balance the genetics (and hopefully constantly improve). And when you consider that a ram has far more influence on the flock genetics than a single eye, each ram has got to be considered as part of the future direction of the flock.

Sandi , I have not commented lately on your videos . I know you are busy and what it takes through the day. My comment is about your last video about people criticising you . They obviously have no idea what you do in the course of the day . You raise your animals and run your farm in a manner that suits you and your animals. As far as I can see you do it right. Your are on top of things and you care about your sheep. So, for those who criticise , please don't pay attention to them. That is the best I can do in socially acceptable language. Stay safe. 🐑🐑.

I want to add my voice to the chorus of people who love, LOVE, to see those baby lambs jumping and leaping and climbing all over those momma's. It makes my heart soar when I see that. I think that is my Drug for why I come back every day, to see if you posted any new video of the babies hopping around. Thank you for all the time and energy you give to make these video's. Cheers and stay safe, Wash Your Hands, I see stuff on them you do not want in your mouth, Really .. Wash up. :) Cheers from Michigan.

I use to have real dry skin cracked feet brittle nails itchy skin winters were miserable. I started taking biotin and also vitamin E it changed my problems so much I took it for other reasons but I noticed all my problems going away. You must take it for a few months to give it a chance to build up in your body.
