Lost one to a Coyote

Came out to feed this morning and I tried to give Pearl a treat. She would not take it. I thought that was strange and started looking around and noticed that one of her ewes was missing. I walked the whole fence area and figured out where a coyote must have dragged the lamb through the fence. I am betting that the wind and out main outdoor light that seems to go out when the wind picks up were the culprits. I plan to leave on arena lights, if the outdoor light does not come on. It usually resets when the wind dies down. Guess I will have to have someone come out to find the short. Anyhow, I was so excited to have quadruplets and now don't. To make things worse, it was an ewe that I would have kept.

That is too bad, Kathy - let's be thankful the coyote/s didn't get more babies.
