I mentioned when the lambs were born last year they put tight little rubber bands on their tails, it restricts the flow of blood to the tail and it falls off after a few weeks. Some people consider it cruel but here is why that process is needed. It's only a very mild case , I would not want to make you feel sick. Our little ram was fly blown, the little green flies bite them, lay eggs which develop into maggots. Which inturn can spread (crawl) right up their backs and down the sides eventually eating them alive. Wonderful!! Shaving their bums keep them dry and if they got runny tummies , keeps the wool from getting messed on.The hummid weather does not help much.
See that sore on his left backleg! Poor boy that's not the best look is it?
