Don't be sorry, it wasn't your fault she died. You did everything you could for her. There's nothing to be sorry about. Grieve the loss like any other but please don't be sorry. I hate to sound callous but it sounds like she may have had an unknown weakness and likely would have had trouble birthing. *hugs* We'll all be sorry enough for you anyway.

Jenna, Growing up with horses, I saw many such things happen to even very pampered animals. They get sick and they die sometimes. It is the toughest part of farming, I think.

You put your heart and soul into your farm, and that shows every day. If you made mistakes, and honestly, we're not there with you to know, then you will learn from them and move ahead. It is so tough to have to leave them for 9 hours a day to work and commute.
If you did not make mistakes (and it seems to me you did due diligence, you got the vet the minute you noticed a problem), then just know, animals are animals. Just like us, sometimes they get sick and there's nothing that will medically help them.

Losing one of your flock is never easy, be it human or animal. Thanks to her for teaching you shepherd lessons, whatever they may be. You're in my thoughts and prayers today for a peaceful heart. ~Vonnie

I'm glad you had your eye on her when you got home and were able to at least give her a chance to survive. With livestock comes deadstock, a sad but true fact. I've learned from this event, hopefully when I'm back into farming and sheep it will save me learning the lesson the hard way.

Jenna, PeaceMom and the others said it beautifully--definitely the hardest part of farming and caring for animals. It is life, isn't it?: messy, awe-inspiring, at times--sad, at times--over-the-moon-giddy or hilarious, life. It teaches us, we learn, and we do the best we can. Clearly, you are a passionate farmer who goes to great pains to be informed and proactive and to share your knowledge with others--you did the best you could. And that is good enough. It really is, Jenna.
Thinking of you and wishing you comfort--

Jenna, I know how you feel. We introduced a new breed of sheep to our farm this past fall, and since spring they've all been struggling with barberpole. We've lost 3 out of 4 lambs and 2 out of 3 moms (so far), despite repeated medicating, different kinds of medications, iron supplements, ProBios...even our vet is shocked that none of this is solving the problem. It's heartbreaking, especially since the other breed of sheep, which we've had for several years, are doing just fine in the same conditions.

So, yeah, I feel your pain. Hang in there.

I know your lamb wasn't a "pet" but that doesn't make it any less sad. Among my dog friends, when one of our 4-leggeds die we tell each other that they're waiting at the "Rainbow Bridge" where they are made whole and happy and waiting to be reunited with the people that cared for them. I'm sure there must be lambs there, too. Whether we really believe it or not is a personal choice, but I've found that just the image can help ease the sadness...at least a little.

Life is messy especially on a farm and I don't imagine this set-back will slow you down. It's just a good reminder that we are not completely in control when it comes to Mother Nature. I think that's a good thing to realize because it helps us learn to respect nature. The ebst of us only have a light handhold of control on our farms. Don't hold too tight with self-doubt or it will ruin your experience. I know you'll move forward. Take care.

Oh Jenna, I'm sorry. I hope you're not blaming yourself.

As I was told not long ago, when two of my first crop of meat birds succumbed in the heat wave - "if you have livestock, eventually you have deadstock". I think that helped me find a little perspective.

August 11, 2011 at 10:09 AM  
Blogger DarcC said...

My only other input is that I find it helps to either get animals in pairs, or buddy them up with an existing animal for a time before they go into the entire herd/flock, so they already have a buddy to lean on, it helps keep stress to a minimum.

I think Miss Jenna that writing a blog is risky business at times. For the reader it is like listening to the same morning radio show every day. The listener feels a connection to the host and the host becomes a part of their life. In blogging, the reader does the same thing but can answer back in real time. Most of your readers are supportive and kind. Others - not so much. I am always warmed by the supporters and so shocked by those who find it simple and easy to slam, that I don't think I could blog. So good on for you Jenna. You are young and can take it and have an audience of followers that believe in you.

It happens my dear, such is life on a farm. There will be other ewe lambs, and you did all you could for this one. The entity that is your farm breathes in and out and keeps on trucking, and so must the woman who holds it all together.
You make it sound as if you're appologizing to us readers for "letting" her die. Don't. Part of joining you on your back to the farm journey is accepting losses. We don't only want to hear the fluffy stuff about sunshine and new baby bunnies. You are real. That's what I love about this blog.

Jenna,

I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I understand you are getting nasty email and comments and that is truly unfair and well wrong. People can not just Monday morning quarterback and critize you when you are treating your animals very well.

Also, its a FARM and animals will die from time to time and those deaths do not mean the owner was not doing a good job, it means life happens. Animals live and animals die on a farm, well everyone would love to have no animal deaths they do happen.

You are a very special woman who does an outstanding job of taking are of your animals. If people don't like it then let them go else where. Keep your chin up and sprits high, and keep doing what you do.

Look at it this way; Grant got his ass handed to him at the battle of Shiloh and most people in the Army thought his career has over. Turns out he not only wasn't done, but he ended up wins the Civil War. Don't let what others say get you down or let you beat yourself up. Get back on your horse, put your hat back on, flip them the bird and get back to work. :-)

Grace and Peace,

John

p.s. sorry if this post was a little long.

I'm so sorry to hear this Jenna. You did your best by her. I can recall a conversation I had with my vet, and what local farmers said about sheep - that they can think of a hundred ways to die, real quick. What she said was that sheep are prey animals, and know it, and will keep going and on their feet because they have to, to survive, and by the time they start to look really ill, often it is too late. Pneumonia is dreadful anyway, and just overwhelms.

I'm really sorry for the loss. Don't beat yourself up. You're only human. Anyone who raises livestock knows that there are going to be losses. Sheep are especially tricky because they're so stoic. Some people say they look for ways to die, but it's not true. By the time they actually show signs of being off, they're usually pretty darn sick. You didn't know this sheep. You didn't know her personality or her "norm", so you didn't realize when she showed the first signs of being off. It's totally understandable. What matters is you did the very best job you could for her right away when you found out.

And does your vet think she got sick while at your place? You have had her such a short time I really wonder if she was sick before she came to you?

Dear Jenna,
Being a farmer comes with death, it's a sad fact. Animals die and sometimes there is nothing we can do about it.
You have cared for her very short time and already was thinking of her as part of your farm family, you took care of her best way you knew how, gave all the opportunity to get better and survive.
In the end she did not make it, not because of what you did, or did not do. She died despite of all you did, nature prevailed.
Do grieve for lamb you could have raised, feeling sad makes you human, but PLEASE DO NOT BLAME YOURSELF, you have done all you could have in the situation.
I know it's hard, you had rough time lately, but remember last winter, when all seems almost lost? You have survived it and came out stronger on the other end.
This makes you person we all admire, strong woman with a great heart, love for animals and the land.
You will get trough it, just give yourself some time and it will all look better.
And for now , we are here for you as you are for us.

You do the best you can with what you know at the time. Even farmers with a life time of experience lose animals to injury, disease, etc. I've seen a circle of 10 dead cows all worth a $1,000 apiece laying bloated under a huge oak tree. The tree was struck my lightening and their hearts were stopped when the cows bodies acted as a ground. Shit happens when you farm despite doing everything you can. You learn what you can from each experience to try and improve the odds in the farmer's favor the next time. Then you move on. Good luck to you Jenna.

Making mistakes is how we learn. It is allot harder when the mistake takes a life.

I always said if I had a dime for all the mistakes I have made with goats I would be wealthy.

Don't be defensive it won't get you where you want to go. Take good notes and learn by doing.

No you haven't had lambs before and yes it is a learning curve. But you have had sheep long enough to know that there is a strong herd instinct and that even the newest member of the flock (herd) will stay as close to them as permitted by them.

An animal that is off a distance from their flock or herd at an odd hour is certainly trying to communicate something is wrong.

And I don't know how the folks in your area do it. But out here when we bring a new animal home they are quarantined for 10 to 14 days. Even if they come from a reputable herd they may have had exposure things my does haven't and my farm may present exposure to a new doe that they haven't had at their home farm.

So a quarantine time, somewhere they can see and hear the rest but not be physically exposed to them, is a win win. It saves someone from possibly becoming ill, allows the new herd member to get used to the new herd and they to her. It also, and most importantly gives me and opportunity to monitor the new doe and get to know her.To me it just makes good sense for everyone involved.

So if you love this as much as you write you do. Dust yourself and start over a bit wiser.

I'm so sorry to hear this Jenna. This has been a rough summer for us shepherds. I lost a mama doe last weekend, and another shepherd friend lost a ewe as well, all to pheumonia or barberpole.

I'm sorry for your loss. It is heartbreaking to try so hard and not have the outcome you are hoping for. I enjoy your blog, thank you for sharing your experiences!

Jenna, I so sorry for your loss. everytime I have an animal die it is so sad, and I grieve. It can be a huge surprise...one of my horses died during the night, heart problem. I did not know anything was wrong. I was so sad. Sharon
