We came home to find one of the sheep (#1118) with a vaginal prolapse. We called the vet, and a friend for advice. Apparently this is a fairly common occurrence in sheep. Sugar water was used to moisten it, and we were able to reduce it. A purse string style suture was put in to hold it in place. All we had on hand was a fillet knife, some wire for threading and a shoe string. So far, the ewe is doing fine. More to follow...
