Well it is usually in the 90s all day here bu who knows it’s Florida. His fair is in May so we have time. Thanks for the tip on getting him white.The snotty nose can be from a cold. If it doesn't clear up in another day or so call the vet to avoid pneumonia. How many days till your fair? If he needs antibiotics, there are withdrawal times he needs to be off them before slaughter. If he needs antibiotics, get a note from the vet as to what he gave, and the slaughter withdrawal dates, in case the Fair Livestock Office ask about meds given. You don't want to get disqualified for not following the rules regarding meds.
When shearing a market lamb, shampoo with dish soap to cut the lanolin and add a few drops of laundry bluing to the rinse water. The laundry bluing will brighten his white coat and make him stand out in the ring. Trim hooves a week before the Fair so he doesn't get sore feet. A limping lamb won't be considered for first place. Shear while he is wet, or at least damp.
Thanks. We played hide and go seek this morning. Here are some pictures they aren’t that good but hopefully you can see the waves. Just noticed my fish have ick . But I treated my tank and hopefully it clears up soonI am enjoying you having so much fun with your lamb!
