We are commercial sheep farmers (around 300 head breeding ewes.) This book is my first point of call for sheep ailments and lambing issues. There are loads of really helpful pictures, many of them now in colour, and the descriptions of symptoms and treatments are thorough and clear. The only thing I would say is, I have never found it quite so necessary to take my top off as the young virile Eddie Straiton did - fans of the original TV Vet book will be pleased to know that many of these original pictures are included in the new book ;)
