My sheeps' feet do stress me. I'm not very confident trimming them. So I've asked Gillian, who scanned the girls, to give me a lesson on Sunday. Jinx has had a problem with a back foot before and she's a wee bit lame again. I trimmed them at the weekend, but it's so wet and muddy that the antiseptic spray just washed off. We've made a pen on the patio and we'll clean her feet and spray them tomorrow and leave them shut in for a wee while. I hate to see her in pain, but hopefully Gillian will be able to put us on a firm footing (deliberate pun!) on Sunday.

If you have problems with your sheep's feet, talk to Crossgates who deal in homeopathic medication and they do one to help prevent foot problems in sheep, it goes in thier water. We use it every year from October through to April and we have very little or no trouble with our sheep's feet. Give it a try and good luck with your girl's feet.
