On the heels of a pretty traumatic night, I'm once again met with another ewe down with pregnancy toxemia.
And it's time to get to the bottom of this.

  • Those triplets at the beginning with the dark wool, I was wondering what an adorable sweater their wool would makes, with having some of each of their wool mixed in together. Then those lambs at the end, seemed to be trying to tell that one lamb that was resting that it was play time. They gave up and pretended to be Mexican jumping beans. They are so much fun to watch before I go to bed. Thank you.

  • Could the birds that are above be pooping in there food which is not good for them. I am sure they are not healthy (birds).

  • I am just now catching up on your videos and this is a repeat comment. But I think it is important to rule out copper toxicity. Previously sent: Copper levels? Change in water? Do you have someone that can perform an autopsy on a liver? The condition sits around sometimes for years and something triggers it. Some genetics can tolerate more copper and others less. I admire your work!!

  • My grandfather was a tobacco farmer and he also raised pigs. He had 4 sows that were excellent breeders, had never had any problems but one year one of his sows miscarried 10 piglets and then she bled to death before the vet could get there. He was a quiet man but I could tell he was upset. The sow was only 4 years old. He did say several times over the next few days, what went wrong. I cried while sacking up the dead piglets, I was only 10 and kept saying, they all look so perfect. You are doing a great job.

  • I appreciate your channel. I know nothing about raising sheep, but to watch you and all the hard work bringing all these precious critters into the world is a thrill. I do get a little sad at the sick babies and moms, and the ones that are lost. I happens, Sandi, in every farming situation. I believe you are a remarkable lady. Stay Strong and thank you for all you do!

  • I am not a farmer but if you guys have to even think, maybe I should call the vet, perhaps you should. Why second guess yourselves? I am sorry that I don't understand. Also, you seem to be more worried about the camera and explaining when you need to act. Do what you have to first then explain. I know it is a harsh opinion but I am not the only one thinking it. The one that died didn't have to (last night). You should have called!

  • The terrible thing about being a strong, confident woman is we tend to know we need to go with our gut, which you definitely did and you were correct, but then we feel guilty that we couldn’t figure out the exact reason. I have no doubt that you will figure it out! You are amazing! Don’t be so hard on yourself!

I live in NB and wish I was closer. Keep making your videos and don't let any haters get to you. There are always people who just are so miserable that they want to spread it around. Blessings!!

  • What if you used the dog crate in the sled but took the top off instead of the front. Then it would be taller and the lambs might not hop out. Just a thought

  • Do these lambs and sheep get to go outside and run and eat. It would take many of acres to do this. I see them confined in greenhouse type areas. I know you love your animals. That is clear. Where is their freedom?

  • What I learned from a very knowledgeable sheep farmer here in NY is that everyone gets just nice quality 1st cut hay. The pregnant ewes and lactating ewes get fed second cut hay and starting 8 weeks before giving birth they should be started on grain. Grain is a mixture of soybean meal and whole corn. Building up to get to 2lbs each over time. Lactating ewes will continue grain until weaning.

  • As a former type 2 diabetic if you have any form of corn 🌽 that will contribute to the problem. People are to only have 1/4 cup of corn before it leads to any problems. I've had a build up and it led to me being being only able to blink my eyes. I was rushed to the ER and when I was released it took about nine months before I was back to normal.

  • Sandi, check the hay source and find out if it has been sprayed with something that kills weeds. If so, it may be posion to the Ewes too. Farmers are reporting that the weed killer is causing their veggies to die when they mulch with hay that was sprayed with the weed killer. It has four different names.

  • Hi Sandy. I really like what you're doing here with showing how a sheep farm works. With regard to ketosis, as a lifelong sheep farmer, I would suggest that most of the problem is due to ewes that are too fat. It is much better for the ewe to be a bit thin and eating a lot than a ewe to be fat and using those reserves to feed lambs. Body Condition Score between 2-3 is ideal. Anything over 3 is too fat. If they jiggle when they walk, they are way too fat.

  • not sure if this is helpful or not... In humans your thiamine (b1) needs increase, the more calories you eat. Also in humans Magnesium is a co factor for thiamine usage (ie deficiency in one can contribute to the other). Also in humans low thiamine can increase blood sugar by imparing insulin synthesis and secretion. So not sure if if relevant with sheep, but might be helpful clues... Also a long shot... your feed could have weeds with thiaminases in them (enzymes that affect thimaine status)

  • Maybe since you are giving colostrum to all the lambs now, maybe milk the mom each time for the colostrum? And only supplement if there is not enough, and freeze back if too much.
