Dominique took 427 home with her, and she reports that his appetite is very good. He readily took to the lamb bar, a bucket filled with ewe-milk replacer fitted with latex nipples permitting him to self-feed when hungry. At three weeks of age his rumen will have sufficiently developed to digest solid food and he will be weaned from the costly milk replacer. In his pen he has hay and a bowl of grain with which he plays rather than eats, but that will change as he gets older. Dominique readies him for pasture by offering him fresh grass clippings. This little footprint likes green.
