Garnet, the Jacob's ewe, has developed ketosis. I hope I found it in time. I am treating her for it and hope that she goes in labor really soon. I thought she was in labor this morning, because of the heavy breathing and the way she was stretching her legs. I called Tor and, after feeling her, decided that she was not in labor. Kyle helped me get her up and she was so weak that the ketosis popped in mind. She is a lot more alert, but will not eat on her own. I will give her a day and then check with the vet. The problems are: the lambs might not be ready, a C section will cause her to not want to milk, and the expense, when it is all so iffy.

Will keep you posted.
