Two new lambs today, one didn't make it. I keep thinking that part will get easier with time, but it doesn't seem to. I brought the one up to the house, chilled and dehydrated. She was failing as I carried her, but we tried anyhow. She stayed with us most of the way as we worked on her, then she simply wasn't there anymore. Not a great way to end the day.

Ouch.
I would grieve mightily over every lamb that was lost, too.
I`m a midwife, and boy, is it hard to see a baby that didn`t make it.........only seen two, and I will not ever forget them.
I hope the rest of the lambing season proves to be easy and fruitful for you !

So far, so good. See Saturday's post for a happier story.
