    You know you are lambing /calving when?

    When you wonder why your front door won't lock when using the fob for the pick up 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    Ewes not milking well

    Slightly off topic, but what minerals are you using, and how are you feeding them?

    We've been breeding ours the same, an Easy Ram NZ Tex we've been using throws quite a few with short tails too, we've left them undocked this year, see how they get on 🤞🏾🤞🏾

    Terminal female conundrum

    You must not be giving them enough cuddles, mine are very well behaved 🤣 They're not bad, really good at filling a race up if they're at the back, they keep the ones in front nice and tight

    Bedding in the shed

    We lime and rebed, double dip with iodene works well. We've started using 50/50 iodene/surgical spirits, seems to dry them up faster

    provita lamb response

    Generally pinch some off another ewe, or at last resort some powdered colostrum, we stopped using spectam and kick start a few years ago, done alright since then (*touch wood)

    provita lamb response

    This! Making sure the ewes have decent colostrum, and that the lambs have suckled well makes such a difference

    Thinking of changing to shedding sheep. Change my mind.

    I do love the way they tout them as pure and bash exlana's. There's a lot of snobbery goes on with them on social media, in my experience and a hell of a lot of bitchyness, doesn't seem that easycare to me 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    Straw for lambing pens.

    We just use 6 stringers that we bed the big pens up with, never had a problem 🤷‍♂️
