We now have EWETUBE up and running for our two Ewes who haven't gotten their babies out on us yet. They are both due roughly 04/19/2019 -04/21/2019

Rose **TWIN EWES 4/26**

http://www.marestare.com/cam.php?alias=meadowbrook

A ewe in early labor will stay on her feet, walking, shifting her weight from side to side, arching and stretching her back.  They will keep themselves nourished, nibbling hay, drinking, or even chewing their cud.  As contractions begin, the ewe stands still, closing her eyes and breathing deeply. Once the contraction passes, she goes back to walking and eating. As the ewe\'s contractions become more frequent, she no longer wants food, as she must focus her attention on each contraction. At times, ewes may squat or sway with each contraction, helping to get the lamb in the correct position.

Once hard labor begins, the ewe begins to push. First, she paws at the ground, as though making her nest. Laying down, with her nose in the air, she works hard during each contraction. You may see what looks like a large bubble or water bag. When the bag breaks, amniotic fluid flows out in a gush. Often the ewe will nicker to her lamb, as if to encourage him along the way. Sometimes, the ewe will stand in between these contractions or change her position, but with each contraction, she lies down to push. Lambs enter the world with their front feet and nose first. Once you see the hooves and nose, you can be sure the lamb is in the correct position.

If you notice any of the above please don't hesitate to CALL us - FB Message Notifications don't always come through. You can call me at (902)986-6999.

Thanks for watching!
