He he. Funny you say that. He had diarrhea again. I got a completely new vet ( like they never met him before) prospective on this. They are think the same as you. They said I need to keep the handful of alfalfa but had a huge 3 handfuls of costal. They said to get him to eat, just tough love it and half grain for a few days so he has to eat it
Too funny! Yeah the tough love feeding is hard. Probably harder on us. Heck I give him a flake of alfalfa and say here you go no more candy (🤣 or animal crackers).

This one is a challenge for you. His many episodes with squirts is teaching you to try many things. You are learning a wider range of care. I wonder if he had coccidia as a youngster, it damages the gut.

It’s very possible. He came from a lathe breeder so he might not have gotten they same 101 care as my other. But I know bullseyes breeder talked great care of their animals.

I give mine great care, but had 3 ram lambs get coccidia. I started treatment immediately and followed protocol. They cleared up but never thrived. I took 2 to auction, kept one because he is the only registered son of my old ram Ringo. I was going to use him for breeding anyway figuring genetics would come through even though he didn’t look so good himself. But he started coming out of it and looking better. Now at 5 months he is looking great. I watch him closely but I think he’s built up an immunity to it now.

I say this to illustrate that even with the best of care, things happen and we deal with it the best we can. I KNOW Bullseye gets the very BEST of care. Whatever it is that gives him the squirts, you are doing all you can for him.
