lamb saved by quick thinking and good help!

 

Saturday morning I was showing some folks the new lambs and right then one of the ewes began to lamb.

Eventually she produced a large fellow but he was not breathing

I got him breathing but then took a look to see what he was, boy or girl, and discovered that he was bleeding out!

His umbilical cord was herniated and protruding out of his belly!

I had the poor folks who were watching all this trauma, throw me a piece of twine that I used to tie off the bleeding area. I rushed up to the house to get my keys to take him to the vet.

Jenny Thrasher was here looking at a piece of furniture that she wanted to buy and she immediately offered to drive.

Thank goodness for her quick help.

Newberg Vet Hospital put him back together and I am happy to say that he is doing fine 6 days later.

Check out the wonderful photos that Jenny has on her BlogSpot.
