First house lamb of the year...

Meet Sally. We’re not sure if she’s Sally-Anne, or just Sally...

She’s a very cute and colour correct Blue Faced Leicester, but she seems to have either a minor neurological issue, or messed up reflexes. Voluntary movements seem fine, but her instinctual and reflexive movement seems exaggerated. For example, when she trys to butt the nipple for milk (a natural movement that helps the milk flow) she falls over backwards and arches her neck against her back... But then she can get back up and walk around and she is alert and seems healthy otherwise. However this means she can’t nurse normally and needs our intervention. She also has some ticks and twitches that look like exaggerated versions of normal skin shakes and head tosses. Very weird.
