Maternity Ward

The maternity ward will shortly be dismantled to allow the moms and lambs to mingle together.  Now that they are bonded there won't be any problem with mixing up babies.  If not put together alone at birth lambs can wander away and crawl into the tiniest spaces, as if they are trying to get back in the womb.  Jealous ewes might steal another ewe's lambs.  Flighty moms might run away and forget about their babies.  All kinds of things can happen.  Dismantling the maternity ward and turning it into a kindergarten will make my life enormously easier.  I will have one hay rack and one water source.  With warmer temps coming the sweaters will come off and lovingly washed and put away for next year.
