  • Don't kick yourself for losing a ewe. It happens. C section deliveries don't always turn out positive. AS A MATTER OF FACT UNLESS THE C SECTION IS PLANNED THERE IS LITTLE YOU CAN DO AND have little chance of saving the lambs. Sandi you do great helping the mommas deliver and im sure have saved many ewes and young by being there when they deliver. You do good, really good at lambing time and all otheer times too.

  • Don’t let those kind of people get to you. We know you try everything in your power to keep your ewe’s safe, and sometimes crazy freak things happen and there’s just nothing you can do. From what I’ve seen in your videos you clearly love your animals and I don’t think anyone can deny that. ❤️ We love you and your sheep 🐑 🐏!

  • The downside is that so much learning is done on the fly. Last year is the first time I had my goat kid. It went very well. This year I had two does go down with preg tox at the same time. Got the vet but still lost one doe and her babies within 24 hours. Second doe had triplets. I ended up pulling last two. First one came butt first. But it was like four hours before baby number two and her head was kind of stuck. Pulled it. Thought I was breaking its poor little neck. Its legs were not coming with its head. Just went ahead and pulled baby number three because she was so weak. Had the vet out for emergency call. I have no clue. Babies survived but I wasn't sure mom would. She did not want to get up. Took the babies out the next day and she heard them. She walked in little bursts. I tied an old sheet around her to try to help her but she just about pulled me over. She is back to her old self now. Babies stay with the mom now but I am bottle feeding. One more doe to go. I had four does. Lost one. A set of triplets and a single. Now it is a waiting game. It is easy to be a sofa quarterback but until you are actually in the game you have no idea. And no matter how much you think that you are prepared something always seems to come up that you have never dealt with.

It’s life it happens you are doing amazing and I wish our sheep had multiples like you. Keep smiling your doing great,your sheep are blessed beyond belief lolol almost precious they live inside

  • I used to have a very small flock when I was young. I love watching your videos. If I could only smell your barn... I think heaven will probly smell like lanolin. I had Suffolk, Hampshires and Hamp-X. An unforgettable journey of learning. Failures and I had success too. That's why I love your videos. This is real. We know you want what is best for your flock of sheep. You absorb everything you can everyday to ensure the next day is better. I would definitely choose you to be on my team regardless the task. God Bless you.

  • I disagree with you getting a surgical knife. The emergency c section looks exciting and valiant to outsiders but really it isn't. (I think this is from too many doctor/cop shows on TV making this seem like it's a good idea). The heartfelt desire to save every lamb possible is a decision your heart wants to make, not a valid husbandry decision. And the chances that you would make a mistake, be too late, or the lamb is not ready to be born would only cause you more distress and not result in the lamb surviving. We all know how much you love and do all you can reasonably do to ensure your sheep and lambs are well treated. This is not a rescue technique but a serious surgical procedure. Talk to your vet. I am sure he will try to talk you out of this too. Really how often does this happen? Once every 4 to 5 lambing cycles? You're not a trained, experienced vet. You know a lot about sheep but have you spent years studying anatomy and practicing this very complicated procedure? Without either of those your chances of success are less than .5%. It's a noble idea but really it's not viable or useful.

  • Sandi, Pat Crane's comments below are awesome, and so are you (you just don't know it). Many of us are critical thinkers, and many of us are tactless in our comments. Please ignore those of us who are ignorant, tactless, critical typists. We/ They would never say those things to your face... they would know they were wrong. I know it is hard to share what you have learned without criticizing yourself; you are a humble human. But some bullies think that makes you a easy target. Those bullies don't see the whole picture as Pat states below. They just like to put you down so they can feel superior. Yet, I bet not one of them runs a successful farm like you do.

  • Ugh, hearing that you get negative comments just irks me. 1) as a farmer, you can’t save them all. 2) the people who complain you didn’t do anything,are probably also the people that tell you, you help the other ewes too much. Simple rules, if you can say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. I honestly appreciate every single video. Every single piece of info you share, even if I’ve heard it times before in other videos. And I appreciate the fact you share so much of your life with us. ❤️ keep on trucking, cause you’re fantastic!

  • I was reading Pat Crane's comments below and I was also a nurse for many years and I think that you are VERY GOOD with your ewes and I love watching you. But you need to remember something that I was told years ago then I got out of nursing school; YOU ARE NOT GOD. Do the best you can and go on. Yes we will always second guess ourselves no matter what, but most of the time what you do was right the first time. The Bible says that for everything there is a season, and everything a time. The ewes time was at hand. GOD Bless you for the wonderful things that you do for your ewes and their babies. You are a wonderful nurse and doctor in one. Keep up the good work.

  • I raised dairy goats. The sad stories are the same. When you’re exhausted during kidding (lambing) you do the very best you can and that doesn’t involve major surgery without the vet. Even with the vet, we suffered trauma and loss. It, unfortunately goes with farming. Still not easy to take. Compassion and love to you. You run a great, humane operation.

Your so strong!! Again listen to everyone and just keep on lambing. Just found you this am, and trying to catch up, I'm proud up you, team, doggies, and especially your lamb families. Give yourself those mental health breaks when needed. Thanks for your videos!!!

I’m new to sheep ranching and oh my goodness I had no idea all that is involved. I have decided that the ranchers and farmers should be receiving the pay that athletes are receiving. Your jobs are so much more worthy than a bunch of football. Soccer, basketball, etc. players. I can’t see an athlete making it through a day what our ranchers and farmers do on a daily basis. God bless our farmers and ranchers!! ❤️❤️❤️

  • I can honestly say that I don’t know absolutely anything about how lambing works, deliveries, or even how to raise and care for sheep. In the last vlog by the time you got to the casted ewe she seemed like she wasn’t going to survive, even if she did get the care she needed. As well as the fact she wasn’t in labor, I personally don’t think a c-section would’ve saved the lambs she had. You know your animals best, and what is best for them. I’m sorry about the ewe you lost, dont let the people who know nothing about your animals tell you how to care for them.

  • Animal raising of any kind is tough. We raise beef cattle, but spring calves notoriously come during a blizzard, or some such. Or they need help in the dead of night or always something. Losing an animal always hurts. You feel like you should have been able to do more, but all you can do is the best you can at the time you are there with the tools you have.
