    Ewe in poor condition

    Hi, a 4 yr old blue faced leicester mule with one remaining twin is in very poor condition. Spine and hip bones are easy to see.

    I have had her & her lamb in an indoor pen for a week with availability of extra hay and sheep rolls, she was treated for fluke 10 days ago given 500ml calcium 8 days ago and given a conditionner 6 days ago.

    She is frequently standing still not appearing to be fully aware and not a great appetite. Lamb is still feeding from her and is OK (ish) but not progressing much.

    There is a second ewe & lamb in the enclosure, but not in the same pen. This one is doing good.

    Any ideas please ??

    Take the lamb off, or you may end up loosing both ewe and lamb, for her time and good grass
