March 21, 2010 – Moving Ewes

Newborn lambs and their mother are segregated to a private pen to allow the ewe and lambs to bond to each other. Moving the lambs back to the main herd is sometimes challenging. We found that by holding the lambs close the ground, the ewe follows.

This ewe was rather good at following her lambs back to the main barn.
