Hi Dee, welcome to the LSB. I can't advise on lambs, but some supplements should be good for her future training.
Your block sounds just right for all your critters to retire on.
Are you away from fire zones where all can be safe, and hope you aren't thinking of retiring yourself , but then all the work associated with the care of animals can keep you young and fit.
Love to hear more from you as you go along.
Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant
