Moose is a sweet, gentle boy who, on arrival, weighed in at a large 6.6kg at birth. Moose has parrot mouth which is when the upper jaw is longer than the lower jaw and so there is a gap between the upper and lower incisors when the mouth is closed. Some lambs who are born with this condition might self-correct depending on the size of the overbite. Despite this condition, Moose loves his bottle and manages well with it in his mouth.
Another very special arrival is Moose’s BFF, Elfy. This precious little bundle has a lot going on with his health. We believe he may have a congenital condition called Spider Syndrome which affects the skeletal/muscular system. This still needs to be accurately diagnosed with our vets, but Elfy definitely has something wrong with his front legs and possibly his spine that is stopping him from using his legs properly. Despite this difficult first week of life, Elfy drinks enthusiastically, adores cuddles and is bright. We are hoping that, alongside our fabulous vet team, we will be able to help this beautiful little lamb grow into a healthy body.
