First Lamb in the Aga

I came home from mucking my horse out to a very sick lamb this morning. I transferred the ewe and lamb into the barn with the ATV and trailer (see photo below) but the lamb was so weak he had to be stomach tubed and wrapped up in a towel and placed in the Aga.

I have been nursing him since 10:00am and he is raising his head and breathing regularly but he cannot yet walk.

We have also had triplets born to a Kent cross ewe. The last one to be born was very weak and had to be stomach tubed too. She won't be nursed in the Aga though as Archie has since set up a heat lamp. More photos to follow.
