Vinnie was born as a surprise on April 9th 2019. We were set to meet the staff of The Grapevine Magazine of Pueblo, CO for an onsite interview.
I went to meet the staff and have them follow me back to MVS. I started down the driveway and saw Claire lay down. It felt odd, so I parked and got out to check on her.
She had began giving birth. 20 mins later I called the veterinarian and told him how there had been no progression and I asked if I should pull and assist. The vet stated that it sounded like the lamb was stuck at the shoulders and that I should begin pulling and assist with the delivery. After I was able to get a good enough grip, his shoulder adjusted and he was born 🙂 (Check out the video of his birth).
We decided to name him “Vinnie” in honor of the magazine visit, as they arrived only minutes after Vinnie was born.
