HI All

I hope this post manages to get to the forum LOL - I seem to have experienced a problem and not sure whether it is me that's causing it or not :-)
So try again...

My weightloss efforts are still going well and I am down to 76 kilos! So pretty happy with that, even if I did pinch a chocolate or two last week!! (you know the small individually wrapped ones!) :twisted:

Our 3 baby lambs have arrived and they are just so cute! We took the sick one to the vet for x-rays to determine what was wrong with him as it just didn't fit in that he had cerabral palsy - well the good nes is he hasn't got that! - he has a broken leg, possibly broken at the time of birth - there is nothing that can be done for the break - as it is too late to splint it. It will take at least 10 weeks to mend and he might be left with a limp! But that is better than a lot of things that could have happened to him.

I am going to send this off now and hope it reaches the forum.....

Cheers

Maria

Yay Maria, your post is visual!
Perhaps Scott did something to make the post come through this time.

I'm glad your lamb didn't have cerabral palsy.
We once bought a limping dog from the dog shelter that had a prior broken leg. The vet said the leg had knitted together in the wrong spot (it should've been re broken and set straight when he was young) anyway he had developed bad arthritis before we got him and the vet suggested putting him down. We kept him for one year and gave him lots of pain and arthritis pills as we didn't have the heart to have him put down straight away.

I hope your lamb doesn't develope arthritis. Does the broken leg have a straight break?

Hi Dolly! Great that I am able to write in!

The break is right across the hock! horizontal :-(

The vet would not consider rebreaking it and setting it again on a sheep!! But I am determined that he will be ok - he is all ready improving slightly.

As you can imagine - lamb is NOT on the menu for our christmas! Have not been able to eat lamb since I started hand feeding the babies...

If I haven't lost a kilo today after all the running around I have been doing - then there must be something vitally wrong with me LOL

Cheers

That's great news about the broken leg. I pray it'll heal fine too.
My daughter went to a farm and handled lambs and has not had a lamb meal since.

Sorry to tell you all this but I have no qualms about eating our sheep, even when I have hand reared lambs. Growing up we also raised meat birds and pigs for eating. I even used to watch my dad slaughter sheep for the freezer, so it's what i have grown up with.

I can understand that. The bloke also grew up eating their animals. His pig pickle apparently was the nicest tasting pig ever eaten, allegedly becasue he was so happy and had his tummy rubbed a lot.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
