Best I can tell I have been sick for three weeks now. I started getting better and then wham! For the past 5 days I have been in bed with a fever. No worries, the doc is calling in antibiotics but like I said...ain't nothing pretty here.
So the day before yesterday we had a ewe that is prolapsing. Her best chance is for us to put in a few sutures so that she does not continue to push out her insides and risk infection.
