Video of ewe giving birth

I whipped my phone out just as a lamb was born yesterday. I wish I had managed to start filming from when the hooves appeared, but you can see the ewe give birth anyway.

The ewe who regained her sight was nursing its surviving lamb but it died last night, Due to the problems which the ewe had, the lamb was born with longterm complications. I tried warming it up in the Aga, stomach tubing it with Lamlac and finally putting it under a heat lamp but it did not survive.

A lamb also climbed into a water bucket and drowned last night which was a sorry sight this morning.
