What we looking at? I'm assuming it's something to stop calves from suckling. We just parted them. Mary's been a dream, at 8 months she's had enough, Greeny, last year born wasn't even bothering by August (9 month old) and after the TB test, i separated them and neither cared. Offered Mary to her the next day, never sucked, wasn't interested and bag was drying up so thought sod it.

Hannah was 3 week old yesterday and am hoping she'll be the same next year! She's as bad as pups, she has zoomies across the field, currently electric between her and the sheep, only couple more days then they all going together to scrap over the grass!
No matter how crap you feel, always remember you're one of the lucky ones with your own piece of land and loony sheep!

We've been using them for years, they're the dogs b*****ks
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
