WEANING (May 1st 2012 )

well my youngest lamb is 6 weeks old now. so i can started weaning the lambs off the ewes. today
this is the  way you do it:  
Take the lambs away from the ewes in the day in a field. the ewes in another field.
Than at night the ewe and lambs can be together..
It takes a week. then you can take the lambs away for good.  
Lambs yell. calling to their mothers and the mothers yell back to their lambs. after a few days they don't yell at all.
