Teeny tiny sheep

We added 6 animals this week!  Charmaine's calf, Ginger,
two Heritage breed Big Black pigs, a cat from a Trussville friend, and two Katahdin sheep.
These babies were premature.   Curley weighed 5 lbs. 6 oz., and Moe weighted 6 lbs. 8 oz., at 5 days of age.  They should have weighed at least 9 lbs.  
Curley was the smallest, that's a 5 oz. bottle in the picture.

Katahdin's have hair instead of wool, so no sheering needed.
Sweet Curley got sick on Monday afternoon, probably pneumonia.
Surprisingly he made it through the night.
We cuddled and loved on him non-stop, as well as getting medication for him, but sadly, he died Tuesday evening.
