Respirator / Aspirator
We're one week into lambing. To all of the contest winners, I must apologize for not getting to the post office. I don't know when, maybe there may be a stolen moment this week. In 7 days there have been 24 lambs born to 14 ewes - a few singles, 3 sets of triplets and several twins. I required vet assistance on a breech birth with triplets but otherwise things have went smoothly.
I find that the lamb resuscitator / aspirator is the most important tool in my bag of equipment. The extraction of mucus seconds after even a difficult delivery makes breathing so much easier. Here's a few lamb photos, as I wait for a bottle of formula to warm up. We've had a few reject lambs, especially with multiple births. But have homes for the little "bummers" to go to. I just don't have time for bottle feeding this season. Must go feed the little one now and do pasture checks.
