Breech Lamb Being Born In The Field

Bit of a long video but a lamb being born a few minutes ago. 

This was her second one and i was just too slow to get the camera out for the first! 

I decided to pull him out the last minute just because he was breech. I was worried if she didn't push him out with this round of contractions and the umbilical cord was broken he could easily drown or breath in fluid. If he was the right way round I would have probably just left her too it. 
I didn't approach her sooner as she was a bit flighty and I didn't want her to run off or to cause her unnecessary stress and affect the birth. 


You can skip to the good bit at 2.50 if you want and I can only apologise for how Herefordshire my accent is!

    1. I think she even looked at me to help! Lol. I don't doubt she would have got it out on her own though.

    1. Thanks! Children are always fastinated by it. I remember lambing one before school last year and my middle child just said "I want to be a farmer". It made me laugh!

  6. Gosh Kev you are certainly busy arent you!!!! Do you grow shiso? for the leaves? it is good for omega 3 fatty acid... I have thought about growing it to add to salad to beef up the vitamins and minerals.
