You did nothing wrong - it's just sheep!

a sheep's main aim in life is to die from being born if you see a ewe/ram old you know there's a good Sheppard to be had as they done a good job keeping it alive  so nothing wrong on your part at all. are there any poisonous plants in the vicinity?

I had another lamb going the same last night so I gave her some amoxypen and a squirt of spectrum.shes still here this morning so I am going to give her some more antibiotics.The tests should be back Tuesday.
no poisoness plants but I am going to move them this afternoon.I only have 11 lambs so dont want any losses really.

first results back, no worm eggs present at all and no cocci eggs present either so they are now culturing some swabs.

 

Why would ewes have a dead lamb and a live lamb?
