With 7 dogs in the house at the moment I often forget exactly what they have been up to when they give me a kiss!!

Thanks for all the replies everyone, I was worried yesterday because, after removing the hardened s**t, it seemed to leave a gaping hole filled with the toffee like substance. More hardened up today and i could just flick it off, leaving a nice clean backside. Crisis averted i think but i'll keep a close eye on the little bugger, especially with rain coming tonight. No doubt i'll have a dozen new problems in the morning! ;)

Hi Tom.  It doesn't tend to happen again to the same lamb in my experience.  Watch him but also watch the younger ones.  They seem to go through a stage when the poo is particularly sticky, then it all settles down

Goat mums seem to be much better in cleaning up their offsprings' backend, only happens in the first few days though. I guess it's when the milk is still really rich, then all goes normal after the fourth day.

But yes - the only reason to keep scented baby wipes nowadays; for lambing season!


I think I have my first lamb problem
