That awful!! You could use electric fencing round the field as this would stop the fox getting in next time????

Ewes do greive for their lambs and I cant see how anyone could say different.
I do think that there are too many foxes competing for very little food and that some sort of cull is needed. We have had chicken killed not eaten just killed and often a dead ewe will be eaten if I dont get to it quickly. You can imagine a shetland lamb stands very little chance unless the mother is very fiesty.
Sorry about the old girl. :bouquet:

I said no more lambs until I could lamb indoors. A dear friend has offered me her stables for next year, only a field away :)

I get to borrow a neighbour's barn. It does make life easier, in so many ways - especially keeping them safe and the middle-of-the-night checks, as you know where they are!

What a sad story, and how horrible it must have been for you, both seeing her miserable and then finding her like that, it does just show how they feel things as well.  :'( :bouquet:
I hope they are reunited

Thank you all for your kind and comforting words. I didn't realise how close I was to poor old Bluey.
