@vfr400boy  So, assuming you have pic saved on your PC/Laptop, almost all photo apps will provide you with a rotate option. For ease, the "Photos" app that comes with Win10 has a rotate button in the upper menu bar (after one has opened the photo) - click the rotate button a few times until you achieve correct orientation.  Save and update your TAS profile !  Ta.

(Sorry to nag about your avatar pic, but I am in-zone for Asperger's syndrome and some things just irritate beyond reason to most folk.)

You have, BUT there is something odd about your uploaded pics (avatar or posted).  Most have black bars either side of pics.  I'm really not sure why that would be.  First thought though is that you are photographing in wide-screen mode and the forum can't adapt to that.

Last years pet lambs are looking a bit thin i know the time of year won't help but is they any thing i can do they get hay and pellets they are in a 6 acer feild with a horse,  I will take a sample to the vets for a count next week to make sure its not worms ( roughly how much will a egg count cost )

Most likely worms or fluke, sounds like they are getting plenty of input.  My hoggs are BCS 3+ this year, only started feeding hay a couple of weeks ago and they get no concentrate.

Have they had a mineral drench?  We give all our lambs a drench (a good quality chelated one) going into winter.  If they are other than bouncy and happy, that would be worth doing too. 

Does the horse let the sheep eat the hay?

How many hoggs is it and how do you feed them? 
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

8 lambs they get a flap of a small bale of hay on a morning but only eat about 3 /4 of it and go off grazing again and on a night I give them a 3kg bucket of lamb and ewe pencils they eat most of that before the horse gets ther and has a bit , thanks for replying

I personally would just get the wormer. Preferably  a different one to that used last year.
