We’ve named Lori’s lamb Robin, after Jon’s Granddaughter. It also happens to be a good name to welcome in the spring.
Robin the lamb is a ram. We’ll call a vet on Monday to come and give him the vaccinations he’ll need, dock his tail and talk about when to castrate him.
His father is a Purebreed Romney like Lori, so Robin is too.
This morning Robin had a sticky orange stool, which is a healthy sign for a lamb. He’s having no trouble nursing and now that they have bonded, Lori is a calm and patient mother.
If you listen closely to the video, you can hear the sound of Robin suckling.
