When our sheep have twin lamb disease we give them injections of calcium and magnesium. It could be that she hasn't enough energy. You could try her with sugarbeet and mollases mixed in.
Hope this helps
Thanks
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.
