We are about to order the flip table once we figure out where to store it. Here's a review of it:Thanks for the clipper/shears review @Ridgetop. I need some, but know nothing about them. @Devonviolet wants to learn how to do fecals too. We can have a poop party while the guys cook on the grill. Only BYH'ers would want to closely examine sheep poop under a microscope, then eat lunch. LOL LOL
@lilipansy do you have a turntable? Can you post a picture of it and how you use it?
ANOTHER SCORE BY BAYMULE! All Hail The Bargain Champion!!!Look what I got today!!! @Ridgetop, if you have packed one, you can unload it. Fill that space with something else vitally important.
Another Craigslist bargain. They were asking $250, BJ offered $200 and they took it. I am good at finding the bargains, BJ is good at getting the price down. This will keep me from being all bent over and having an aching back! So now we rig up the sorting gate and make a cowpanel chute to the stanchion, cause I sure got a terrible eye problem with my sheep happily walking up that ramp--I don't see that happening!
I have seen these tables in use for cattle only. They were trimming hooves on a dairy herd. It is actually a squeeze where the 2 sides moved in and that squashed the cow in place while the table rotates to the side. There is a brake on it to lock it in place until the animal is locked in. It looked like it took some strength to roll the cow over but we are talking about a 1500 lb. cow so maybe not so bad with a 200 lb. sheep. The tables come in different sizes. At the time, while the farrier made quick of the hooves, I wanted one badly. Sure beats bending over to trim a lot of animals. But it was large, like LILIPANSY we had no place to store it, and it was too expensive for our small flock.We are about to order the flip table once we figure out where to store it.
