Well, mission failed !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ewe will more than happily let me catch her but lambs NO way !!!!, tried hurdles she came in but lambs just ignored me and grazed away  ::)

So best solution I can come up with is to pop ewe in my hurdles at feeding, feed her by herself so I know she's getting plenty  :)

She seemed ok last night and udders felt better than the other day, fuller with more milk  ;)

Lambs look to have nice round tummies and are grazing like big boys and girls  :)

That's have to do me for now  :wave:

Little devils  ;D ;D   Your compromise seems fair enough as you can get a good look at her and feed her without the others taking it all.   Is she still a bit weak on her front legs?  Hopefully it will all settle down  :sheep:

Thanks Juliet, yes still a wee bit weaker with her front legs......I am now studying everyone in the field walking to access movement !!!!!  ;D not as bad as she was though so I think she's improving.....phew, think she quite likes this attention and all the food  ;)
Lambs are wee monkeys but I would be more worried if they were easy to catch and weak looking  :)

Yes, if they're leaping about like that, and look full enough, all is probably well  :)
