Customer Question

I have about a one year old ewe, all of a sudden goes off by herself and lays in the middle of the field. Seems to be sick, although she was eating this morning. She did the same thing yesterday. She has always been flighty. I have had her since she was a lamb and also have the ewe that is her mama. She has been on hay and is not transitioning to green grass although the grass is not very plentiful yet. They have ample water and always have.
