that sums it up nicely :lol:

For the ewes that have prolapsed.

We found out a little device yesterday called a Ewe Saver (sounds like a bank account :scratch:)

Image

After pushing everything back inside puker: the "tounge" of the device gets inserted and the strings are then tied to a clump of wool on each side of the poor girl. It looks extremely uncomfortable for them and the process of doing it is somewhat difficult. Takes 2 people at least to do. 3 would be ideal.

Wow! looks like a cushy landing for the little fella :D Lovely green grass LOL! Fascinating pictures. That poor ewe with the prolapse! Eouch :( Once the lamb is born will she survive? Would like to see the contraption in use. Can't quite get my head around how it works :D

That particular ewe didn't survive. The lamb had gone rotten inside her.

There have been a couple more that have ptrolapsed and we have been able to intervene as soon as they were discovered. Hopefully they will successfully give birth and all will be well. We should know in the next couple of days.

I'll try and get a pic of it in place.

Here is one of the afereffects of the use of the ewe-saver

Prior to birth thefat tounge of the device would be in the vagina holding everything in place as the lambs were born it was pushed outof te way.
Unfortunately we had a few proapsed Ewes and this so far has been the only successfull one :(

I found aphoto of one fully inserted

Checks of the paddocks are done each monring and afternoon to see how things have gone over night and pick up any that have had trouble. If the lamb gets stuck during birth and its found early enough, bit of a helping hand is required.

I picked them up from Crookwel vet. Elders or landmark carry them apparently but were out of stock.

If its prolapsed before birth we found we needed to get things put back together ASAP if the were left for a day or 2 they didn't survive.

Thanks for that. I expect that's what will happen here, as the ewe was found yesterday, and she's not a spring chicken either :(
