Greetings. For the past week life has been just basically summertime busy. We were blessed to have some cooler weather preceded with rain...so the pastures are growing and the parasites are rearing their ugly little heads. The fleas are coming under control but the soft bodied ear ticks and internal parasites are wrecking havoc with the sheep. I have been wrestling with one of my more mature ewes...a very good producer who has a balance problem probably secondary to the ear ticks. This has been physically demanding since I had to drag her into a stall..uphill and force milk replacer and medicines...she is improving. I have been catching and deworming any lamb that gets in arms reach.
Work was moderately busy and having gotten up 30 minutes earlier to treat sheep I was looking forward to a nap. Actually glad I swung through and picked up that hamburger because the day just got more complex when I got home. I did snag a good two hour nap and now at 10:30pm looking forward to resuming my rest...til morning..lol
Mom and ponies doing great and Mom and I have been going to a new gym with great success.,

    Yay on all counts!

    Stupid question, but how do you keep track of which lamb you've 'medicated'? I know, it's rude to think they all look alike... LOL
