An idea for footbathing just one sheep
« on: October 16, 2016, 07:50:34 pm »
So our new boy arrived yesterday, and as well as the usual quarantine wormers etc, we decided to give him a footbath. The problem was how to do it without using loads of solution ??? . Luckily, I remembered somebody on here saying that they use a pair of old wellies  :idea: .


It wasn't easy, I have to say. However, after a few false starts and some bribery we got him to stand in there for long enough. It was also quite amusing to watch!  :roflanim: :

Oh, and another thing, once they're settled, you can stand on the toes of the wellies to skoosh the solution around their feet for better cleaning too  :thumbsup: .

LOL.  I'm still not sure if I'm unusual for doing things like this, or if I'm just unusual for posting photos of them and not being embarrassed!  :roflanim:

Yes indeed - he's lovely.  If you think his front end looks good, you should see his @rse and b0ll0cks though!!  :roflanim:
