Hi folks, have a ewe who was pushing out last night and then it went back in for 24 hours, it’s back out again tonight. Should I be worried or any advice?

I had a ewe lamb with a smaller prolapse than that, just as she was coming up to lambing. She lambed fine and it settled back in. I recorded it but didn’t mark her as a cull.

Yesterday morning she had the whole lot out.:banghead: . Now stitched and harnessed until it settles.

I’m firmly in the ‘harness camp’, with the spoons thrown on the fire 20 years ago, before they could irritate even more ewes! Better than nothing in the absence of anything else being available, but I try to keep enough harnesses on standby, just in case.

Harness anything that is more significant than a little protrusion when lying down.

There are times when I might put a 'spoon' in the harness to help keep everything in the right place. I would look to remove the spoon ASAP and continue with just a harness.
