This ewe, who we’ve been calling Blue Streak because of a mysterious blue stripe that showed up on her side after shearing (can’t figure what she rubbed up against, or maybe it is grease from John’s clippers?), has been under the weather off and on for the past week. Some ewes get weak before lambing and we just hope that they lamb before they totally run out of gas. Blue Streak is still eating, but doesn’t get around very well. We are supplementing her with an electrolyte energy drink and fresh cut grass salads, which she devours. With luck, she will lamb within the next few days.
