Looking a wee bit thin

Looking a wee bit thin

One of the ewes, ‘the other one’, looks like she has lost a bit of condition. Not all that surprising as she is feeding twins, but she definitly looks thinner than the other 2. We thought she might have worms but after talking to the vet this is apparently unlikely as she doesn’t have scours. The vet suggested sheep nuts (very popular) and some good quality hay, so we seperated her and her twins off and treated her to nuts and lucerne. Hopefully she will fatten up a bit, but if not there is a product called Ketol we can try. Her lambs are both looking good and are feeding ok.

Tails are starting to drop off, 2 down so far, 3 to go. All other bits still attached.
