There were a bunch of sudden deaths on a property in Galt, Ca and a necropsy
on one of them from UC davis showed pneumonia and cardiac issues-there were
8 ram lambs that died. Not sure if this is a problem in FL but I am holding
4 ram lambs for that guy to see if there are other issues. ABB sheep are
very tough so it is a concern if there is a new bug out there that takes
them out so quickly. My sheep are isolated from other herd so hopefully if
it is a bug it will bypass me here.

Subject: [Blackbelly] suden death of ABB ewe
I am a registered ABB breeder in south miami florida
this morning my strongest 3 1/2 year old ewe died without any sign of
illness or distress.
she gave birth 2 weeks ago to a beautiful ram (5 lbs) which she nursed
I found and burned her placenta.
She was well rounded,not skinny and she had no diarrhea and blood in her
her eyes were pink
I opened her belly and did not find any unborn baby
her stomachs were full of grass
her intestines very clean and no blood
I did not find any fecal pellets
I will appreciate any info.
thank you very much
