Tail docking North Ronaldsays
« on: April 11, 2019, 10:58:07 pm »
We have our first Ronnie lamb and I was getting ready to dock her tail when I read that these "short-tailed" breeds don't normally get docked. Is that correct. Do I simply leave the natural tail?

Definitely don't dock them - they don't need to be done and if you are wanting to register them then by docking you will make them ineligible.  It's the same for all Northern Shorttails.  There's nothing to dock anyway.
