Nasal bots?
« on: April 24, 2024, 08:37:28 am »
I have two sheep with snotty noses - green thick mucus with blood streaks. One is due to lamb within the next week, one is not in lamb. They are in different fields.  Could it be nasal bots or is it too early in the year? It's been cold and windy here for what seems like forever! They seem otherwise well.

OK thanks. I did think it was too cold for bots but didn't know they could overwinter.
