Gaussian is back on the up!

Saturday is weigh day for my little man, and yippee at last he has put on a bit of weight again. He's back to 15.2kg so hopefully he will continue, that's half a kilo in a week! He has been a good boy with his bottles today and had another 850ml and he has also had some liquid feed to see if that helps.

He has actually had the mischiefs on him today which he has never done before. He was wondering round the field sniffing the girl bottoms tonight, which wasn't going down well with most of them! Angelus and Kate particularly were not amused.

We have (hopefully, fingers toes and everything else crossed) Mia proofed the back paddock and reunited Mia with the other lambs, who have incidentally not once tried to escape. I'm hoping that she will still be in there in the morning.

Hi Debbie,

Hopefully this cold weather will bring Gaussians appetite back, he'll need all the feed he can get to keep him warm, so lets hope he continues to feed...nice to hear that he has put a little bit of weight on, Im hoping the liquid feed works well for you and helps to gain him some more weight, I'll be keeping at watch on Saturdays for the weigh-ins !!....Jayne
