Feeding our little lamb

Feeding our little lamb

This little lamb is a twin. His little brother is not doing so well and has bloat, from hand feeding. They were born on a horrible wet, cold and windy day and lost condition straight away and would not feed. They were so weak they could not stand. So the next morning we started hand feeding them which was not what we wanted for our sheep but the only choice, unless we were prepared to let them die. Once we returned their heat and gave them food we tried numerous times to get them to feed from their mother but her milk did not come in even though she has not given up on them.
