    Coffee anyone ?

    Popping in because I am not sure of the last time I posted. In the middle of a four day lamb trip, but came home for twelve hours. Already had some adventure. Hopefully I will share it when I get back or when I sleep again in August.

    60 day Pro Hair 100 challenge

    I didn't think about the mud, like I said, leg wraps are really a pain. But from what I know and what I have done, if the legs are absolutely 100% dry when you wrap, and you don't leave wraps on more then 3 days between re-washing the legs, and re-wrapping, they are fine. I have done them the...

    Do you wrap his legs? I know it is a pain, but that prevents them from being able to pick at it.

    Should I be giving my lamb baking soda??

    Honestly, you'll know its something, when you see it. For us, it presented itself as lameness, that got progressively worse. Oral antibiotics helped but any attempt to take him completely off them was unsuccessful. Eventually a big abscess appeared, and eventually with an X-ray, we discovered...

    Honest moment here, sometimes you have to push doing legs back a day because of weather. Do what you need to do.

    I am not really sure any of us actually understand it. If I am being honest, it is a pain, but when you like winning more then you dislike doing the work, you do the work.

    Should I be giving my lamb baking soda??

    I would also say I agree with what Bay said, because I think we are on a very similar feeding program. I personally have never had it suggested to give baking soda. Most show feeds are relatively complete feeds too. With the mentions of acidosis, I actually have dealt with that, but we caught it...

    Should I be giving my lamb baking soda??

    I would be interested to see the article. My lambs are only on ShowRite, hay, and one supplement. Having dealt with acidosis, it was never even suggested to mix baking soda into the lamb's food.

    I honestly don't have the best exercise system, we turn ours loose with muzzles on, and chase them around the pasture. Otherwise I just hand walk. We didn't think a treadmill was practical for us, so I have never had one, or any fancy exercise system.

    Coffee anyone ?

    It was 90 on Thursday, but it rained and then snowed yesterday. It's melting today and I'm sure it will be 90 again soon.

    Coffee anyone ?

    Howdy, just got lambs fed, snowed enough here that we had to cancel the show we had scheduled today. Going to go make some coffee in a second and hopefully get random things done around the house.
