Yes, I am looking at your flank.

Badgerface, his momma, is all blue on one side because he’s been rubbing up against her for comfort despite being weaned.

He gets in and scraps for hay and grazes out in the pasture now, he’s gaining weight.  Probably can’t expect any fleece, but he is likely to be in good shape by October if his healing continues to progress.  This is rapid recovery, normally it would be another week or even longer to see this level of improvement.

  1. Does he get pain meds or does he seem to be in pain?

    Goody Johnson: He got pain meds when the vet came, and I gave him a little baby aspirin that night which he ate, but he only ate one, and since then he hasn’t shown signs of pain or lethargy. He’s behaving normally and full of lamb-ergy.
