Hi everyone, my next door neighbors keep a few sheep - mostly to eat down their pasture, but they also slaughter one for meat now and again. They are the nicest people in the world and the sheep are spoiled rotten, but I don't honestly think they know much about sheep. For example, a week or two ago, I said to them, "looks like you're going to have some new lambs pretty soon!" And they responded with, "Baby sheep? Oh no no no... not for 2-3 months or more." I knew they had two very pregnant ewes, though. Then, this past weekend, a new lamb was born (duh.)
Anyway, it is darling and it seems to be getting along fine and it hops and frolics and runs all over the place, but one of its front legs is kind of crooked. My neighbors mentioned it to me and they seemed worried but they have no clue why it's like that. I was wondering if anyone here might have an idea from this picture:
Is this cause for serious concern if the lamb seems to be moving around and running and playing with no trouble?
Thanks for any thoughts!
