This sheep is tiny! I wasn't expect it to be so small, but he was cute. In retrospect I paid way too much money for such a scrawny little thing, but whatever, lesson #1 in buying sheep.
He hasn't been eating well for a number of reason, and I am still working on it. I have concluded that I need to build a "creeper feeder gate" to partition an area in the pen where only the lamb can enter.
It seems that lambs are picky eaters, so he wasn't wanting to eat the food that he had peed in LOL! So putting it in a container up off the ground, he was more likely to eat, but the bigger lamb would knock him off. So he would get shoved aside and would be spooked.
A Virginia tech article I read described the importance of the lambs having access to "lamb food" that the ewes could not reach. This helps in the lambs weight gain.
I feed him some lettuce from our garden. He seemed to like that. His stomach did seem more full.
He was having a hard time getting up from the ground. Sometimes I would find him on his side, unable to get up.
