I raise the bummer lambs.(In this top picture Matt is helping).Usually a bummer comes to me when the mother has triplets and cannot raise the third lamb, but a ewe can also not claim her lamb and not take care of it, so I get to! Another reason could be that the mother for some reason has died but that doesn't happen very often. We try to graft the lambs on to another ewe if it is possible so we don't have to raise them as bummers. When the bummers come to me I usually start out bottle feeding them so they can get used to the rubber nipples and keep track of them better and make sure they are doing good. Usually after a couple of days the lamb will watch the others and figure the bucket out itself because it wants to do what the other lambs are doing. After that my job is pretty easy I just mix the milk and put it into the buckets so the lambs have food whenever they want it. Raising them that way helps them grow better so they don't get a pot belly like if you feed them with a bottle.
