N-Ewes from Hopeful Shetlands

Friday, July 17, 2009


Every once in a while nature throws us a curve and this year it was a BFL cross ewe lamb, Annabelle. I have never had a sheep born with an undershot jaw, so I am putting it down to the ram, the cross, or just one of those things. We named her Pugs, because she reminded me of a pug dog, with her rather mashed up face and sniffly respirations. Her twin is fine and it was a vet delivery, so decision was if she could survive I would keep her and try to find her a home. That home came to be at a friend of mine's house. Catherine brought her kids over to see the lambs and they thought that this little ewe needed a special home because she was special. When Annabelle's mom stopped feeding her , due to those sharp protruding teeth, the Stark family came to the rescue. Their kids gave her a much nicer name, and she is now part of the family. Whether out running with her kids or napping with her friend, Norman, she is now a happy little lamb.
