Well, it was all going great until today. Blizzard was fine in the halter so I tied her up today. In her struggle to free herself, she's knocked her horn. It doesn't look too bad but there was a bit of blood. I'll get the vet to have a look at it on Friday.

Other than that, I was permitted to rub sides, belly and legs without a food bribe. I think she was just shattered.

I gave them a CalfLyx Easy Breather lick today. Although we've improved the ventilation, I thought it might help them. It smells really good, actually. I hope they don't eat it in lumps like the sheep do though.
