It has been one of the most insane lambing seasons ever.
Still not done.
Of the 40, there are 37 survivors. Three of the 37 are bottle babies:
1. Flopsy: deprived of either oxygen or a brain lobe in his little lamby head, he never figured out that milk does not come from his mother's ass. He loves anyone on two legs because they feed him, and one of his favorite activities is riding around the pasture in Gay Panda's arms after eating. His mother is completely bewildered at his rejection of her as a food source, and finds some consolation in his much brighter sibling.
2. Mr. Congeniality: a perfectly normal and intelligent triplet, his mother has a love/hate relationship with him. Love: she calls him over. He runs over happily, kicking and bleating, and then the relationship turns to Hate: she butts him away and refuses to let him nurse. This has been going on since birth. He is very tiny, and wobbles over to humans with a hopeful expression that a bottle might happen.
3. Wild Thing: another triplet, his family relationships began on a good note. For no reason we can figure out, his mother turned on him. Sadly, he HATES the bottle; he HATES people; he just wants his mother to like him as much as she likes his two siblings. Lady Friend put him in the lambing jug for bottle feeding, where he bleated so sadly that all of the other ewes came running over to see what was wrong. Even ancient Gramma Piss Ninja, who has not had lambs in three years, ambled over to look at him in concern. It is just pathetic.
Gay Panda has spent the evening covered in amniotic fluid, Lamb Lac Milk Replacer, and bits of hay and grain, and is going to bed.
There is a very obvious name for Wild Thing methinks... Matt Dillon
And I don't know why you are fussing about amniotic fluid and milk replacer.
There have been Queens who bathed in milk, a Countess who bathed in blood(not to mention Kim Kardashian), and I bet a little amniotic fluid is great for the skin too!
