Ewe with twins
« on: February 10, 2014, 05:37:23 pm »
I usually raise a few lambs for meat each year and this year I have been offered a ewe with twins at foot.  Would the ewe be happy just with her lambs or would I need to get another ewe to keep her company?

What would you plans be once the lambs go in the freezer?  If you'd keep her and a ewe lamb on as breeders and/or pets, that would probably be okay.  But yes, like any mum, ewes do like a bit of adult company, if poss!
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
