It's pronounced as a sheep baas of course. Named after my sister Barbara. LOL.Trouble here though, with the ewe unable to get up unaided. I can lift her rear and she'll make it but it may mean the lambs didn't get a drink last night. I think the little ewe lamb did find the teat while she was up but the ram lamb looked so flat that I pulled her down and milked some colostrum out for him. May have to repeat that. I can get them onto a bottle, we do have the milk powder here , just not looking promising for dear old Shadow though. She may have twin lamb disease. Shearing her heavy fleece might help her to get up - doubt it really - and then I'd not have anything to grip. The joys of rearing lambs. (NOT!)
