Wow, I’m glad they bought both little bottle babies! I’m sure their children will enjoy feeding them and playing with them while they are still little.

Hopefully you have easy births from Ewela and Honey after what you’ve gone through already this season.

Ah...this alleviates alot of my worry. I didn't know how you would ever be able to bottle feed all those babies every day.

How long will you bottle feed Jeremy, and will you eventually put him back on his mom?

No. I pulled him to give Dot less energy drain. She has raised triplets for the last few years, but the quads took a lot out of her.

Typically a bottle lamb is weaned within about 6 weeks.

You get the lambs all on that, then you can fill it with milk and an ice bottle and they are done for most of the day.

We finally had some sun this afternoon. I took Jeremy Camp out with me to the pasture to take some new baby pictures.

Dot and Thyme and the children enjoyed the new baby grass. Ewela and Honey were in the other part of the pasture.
