'Dosing and Tailing Sheep'

We brought some of the sheep and lambs into the pens this morning;  the lambs were dosed with medicine for worms and the sheep had the wool around their tails trimmed.  As the grass grows some get pooy bottoms so it keeps their udders clean and when the time comes to shear them in late June it is easier too.   A couple of sheep were lame too, so they had a mini-pedicure and their feet sprayed with an antibiotic spray.
