Bottle babies

We’re having trouble with Greta who gave  birth to a single lamb last Wednesday and to two more on Thursday; one of those second two didn’t survive. I had a feeling, by Friday afternoon, that she wasn’t feeling well and was certain of it by Saturday. Although she’s on antibiotics,  Greta isn’t eating – not a good sign, especially in a ruminant. Because she isn’t producing enough milk for her twins we began bottling on Saturday and both little ones are eating well and growing nicely.
