Video of a trapped ewe that needed my help.

On the weekend one of my neighbour’s ewes became trapped in our fence.  My neighbour was away so I took it upon myself to assist with freeing the poor animal.  I apologise for the quality of the video.  My daughter helped by filming the event, yet she is not very experienced.

My eldest son actually found the animal and rushed to get me to come help.  It was starting to get dark, so I had to do this before the cold really effected the ewe.  She appeared to be pregnant and at one point started to act like she was going to be sick.  I told my son later that his actions surely saved the sheep, as she probably wouldn’t have lasted the night.

Once the animal was free she ran off to join the rest of the flock.  I went and had a wee laydown as I was very tired.
