I have 24 sheep but today one of my Herdwick lambs died. It was inside the pig ark they use as a n occasional shelter, and there was a dead rabbit in the doorway. This had guts coming out (sorry) had been killed by something. When our son found the lamb it was still just alive but it quietly died within a few munutes. It was a good lamb, plenty of weight on it, a bit dirty round the tail, otherwise perfect and was skipping about yesterday. Could it have been trapped in there by a fox and been frightened to death? I just cant get my head round it. We do have a fox problem - we lost a number of lambs in spring but this one was april born and big and unharmed. Its horns weren't ingrown. One of the others has a bit of a cough and a couple have dirty rear ends I just clipped. They are on the last of the grass but just got onto a new field which has been resting on the 6 weeks rotation. A ram will come next week and I dont want us to have some disease, though we havent had any movement on or off our land since May. Any ideas please?!
