Posts Tagged ‘lamb with inverted eyelids’

It’s done.  The 2017 lambing season is over for Morris Brook Farm.

Late yesterday afternoon Abbie gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl.


They are both healthy and doing well.

I had a bit of a problem with Cotton’s two boys.  I noticed their eyes were weeping and looking sore.  I called the vet and then picked up some antibiotic ointment to put in their eyes.  I did that for two days and there was no improvement.

So off to the vet we went.  It turned out that both boys had an eye condition called  Entropian.  This is when their lower eyelids are turned inward and the lashes and hair rubs against the cornea.  The vet turned their eyelids out, and then put one little stitch in each eye to hold it in place.

I could see an improvement by the time I had them back home.

They triplets are doing well.  The boys are very cute and have the usual upright and pointy ears,


but their sister Blossom has to be the cutest lamb I have ever seen.


For some reason, her ears hang down, kind of floppy like a puppy  or a bunny.

They all look a little different, but they are all doing well,


just hanging out in the sunshine.


That’s it for this year…the gang’s all here!
