Well, as planned (unusually), we sorted out the sheep at the weekend. Wormed, fluked, dagged and feet trimmed. Unfortunately, Lucy had a wee bit of fly strike - fortunately, we caught it really early and gave her a spray of Crovect. It's just like Chanel No5 but blue! Dan checked her last night and she's clean, so we'll keep an eye on her. It didn't affect her appetite at all - she is VERY like her auntie Juno, in that respect.

Dickie was completely relaxed about the dosing and the dagging - since he was castrated, his attitude seems to be "bring it on, I'll cope"! He's such a wee sweetie.

I will take a worm count in two weeks just to make sure the wormer is working. L'il' Bud and Dickie will be going off to do their stuff mid October, so I want Bud in particular, since he'll be doing the work, to be in good condition. He'll only have about 4 or 5 ewes, so he shouldn't find it too onerous.
