Our spring maintenance was today. We caught 20 sheep. Each one went on the stand and had their hooves trimmed. Their body condition, fleece and conjunctiva color were assessed. And they each had a copper bolus given. The photo is of Harlen getting his maintenance with the remaining sheep watching. They each did get a nibble of grain for their trouble.
Generally their conditions were as expected as were their hooves. They all had excellent color. But the disappointment was their wool quality. It has definitely gone downhill due to their aging. So that is sad but the fact that they appear healthy is good news.
