Just reading a little about wild sheep. It seems complications in lambing is not an issue with them.
Or as much.
Im in the barn now. Wild sheep mountain or Dahl, ont have a big range of ram to ewe sizes but the commercial breeds are always trying to grow faster growing bigger lambs. Since we grow mostly for wool , the lambs are a bonus but it can be a problem. Several yers ago I bought the Supreme Champion Ram from maryland Sheep Wool, It was a gorgeous well hung super bright looking young stud ram. He was about
1.5 X sizes larger around the neck than the ewes . So when he bred about 50 of the ewes the first yar we had to han deliver all the lambs and they were 90% twinning. So it was hand pulling and swabbing and swinging lambs around in a circle by theiir back legs to clear their lungs. We help the lambs get colostrum to develop their immune systems and then they have to nurse at lesst once before I can go inside back to sleep. We ran a wifi booster back to the milkhouse where I put in an electric heater and a microwave for tea and hot pockets. Ive often sat in the old recliner we used to have in the house back when we began and just slept there till the sunrise.
not t nite, that heater is long gone. and I didnt get any Kerosene for the old kerosene heater
