Sheep Husbandry

 Sheep work today for our 6 ewes, the ram and 8 lambs.  Drenching (with Alban), vaccinating, and in one case a dust with some fly strike powder.

We don't own many sheep, but our yards are so bad that it is hard work treating them.
We did use some portable panels to add an extra holding yard which helped but the main timber sections are in need of replacing too.

I bought back a couple of the lambs that didn't seem to be doing well so I could keep them in the orchard, feed them up and keep an eye on them.

It is dry here as we have been missing the bulk of the rain so far this year.
