I think I'm prepared....

All of this stuff is what I have in my 'sheep ready' bucket. Just about anything I could think of and there is more in the barn already waiting (buckets, halters, clips, panels, baking soda,etc) I have already moved a cot to the barn until my barn cam arrives perhaps tomorrow or Tuesday at the latest. These AI girls I feel need a little extra watching over, even if they are seasoned moms....I don't want anything to happen to the babies!

I believe everything in this bucket is either for the lamb, or the ewe and hopefully I won't have to use most of it, but it always seems the time you don't have something (like at 3am on a Sunday morning) you will need it. Better to be safe than sorry I always say!

We didn't see what's in your bucket, Garrett. Vallium is a good start, some peanut butter crackers, a nice bottle of "whatever you prefer" . . . you may need a trunk . . .

Ditto Penni's post. Good luck for a safe lambing season.

Dude, you are as prepared as anyone I've ever seen! Best of luck to ya. I've also found that a watch comes in handy. I don't know how many times I looked at my wrist during a lambing and discovered my watch was in the house. LOL.
