The sheep in the foreground of this photo are the mama who was sick and her 7 week old ram lamb. With the help of neighbor eyes, we determined that the ram had been attacking her. She and her lamb have been mostly separated from the ram for the past 2-3 weeks and now the ram is gone. Mama and baby are doing great. Putting weight on and looking healthy. We are all looking forward to a spring of doting on lambs and coddling their mamas without the tyranny of a half-crazed ram to terrorize ewe and human alike.
Sometimes, it works.
