Marriner Flock | Simone the Lamb

Written by

We were thrilled at the arrival of the Marriner lambs a few months ago, but one of the little ones didn’t have a very strong start with the rest of the flock.

  

Simone the lamb was suffering from Joint-ill, an infection that affects the joints of lambs, causing swelling and difficulty standing or walking. Monty the lab took to the little guy immediately and became his protector after we brought him inside to help with his recovery.

 

Simone needed to be on a strict course of antibiotics to fight the infection, so was regularly bottle fed to make sure he was getting everything he needed. Despite needing the safety and security of the house for his recovery, Simone still…

Marriner Flock | It’s scanning day at Marriner Farm…

Written by
