Meet Rambo II. Our new Whiltshire Horn Ram. He is a 2017 drop from a stud breeder, and has been happily introducing himself to the rest of the flock. Fingers crossed for an uneventful lambing season. August here we come. The breeder said any dramas to let him know. We may have to start from scratch if a change of ram does not help.
The ewes are whiltshire horn as well. They are a self sheeding meat sheep. We love them. But the last 2 years have had lambing issues. BIG twin lambs that couldn't get into position. We had 2 years before that with no dramas. Changed rams and issues.
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
