What a good day’s work!
I had been meaning to drench the sheep for a week or two, but the weather or circumstances haven’t been suitable until today. Myself, my brother Murdo and my dad suited up and went to work. First we took the ewes from one of the crofts, out to the fank.
I am still struggling a little with the nail I stood on on Monday, so Murdo walked them out, while I cruised out in the pick up.
Once in the fank, we blitzed the drenching.
I took 15 sheep home, while the rest went out to the apportioned on the moor for a week or two.
Back at home, I gave the lambs their second Heptavac dose.
I am keeping them penned in for a day or two, to get them onto the sheep feed. The lambs haven’t been fed sheep feed before, apart from wee bits they’d have with their mothers, so they have to be persuaded to take it. Doesn’t take long, most are already eating it.
