So, I found out sheep have a sweet gland above this hooves. But Dutch as hair growing out of it. Is that supposed to happen? And should I be cleaning it out regularly? Looks kinda creepy.
I think he got some fungus on his ears. There is some white patches on it. I need to get a better picture.
Lastly I took out Dutch’s extra ear tag. Should skin grow over it?

The patch got bigger 😨. I’m going to get some Miconazole cream for it.

Hay @Poka_Doodle have you had this on your lambs?

What "extra" ear tag did you remove? You will need the scrapie tag to sell him. Many breeders put in 2 tags - one is the scrapie tag assigned to their flock, while the other is the individual ID tag which identifies the lamb which the breeder would use to identify which ewe and ram the lamb was out of.

It was a tag that had his dad’s initials from the breeder. It just said BM. He has his JSAF tag and his scrapie

Great. How is the stuff on his ear doing? You can try smothering it with sulphur cream, or iodine.

It is still there. Showing spreading. The ring out meds got delayed again. I don’t have any of that but I herd vinegar naturally repels it so should I spray some on his ears??

Onion juice will kill ringworm. Grate an onion, squeeze juice, apply with a q tip, get it good and wet. It should help this too, until your medication can get there. Several applications of onion juice kills the ringworm fungus.
