I posted an enquiry about what looked like warts on two of my sheep, Vet diagnosed derma thingy wot sit on the second one. First one didn't get to Vets due to fly strike ( in October !!! ) so watch for that skin, probs give an odour which attracts flys. Also this skin prob can drag them down weak enough that they die.

REALLY useful.  We had a couple of scratching biting , fleece loosing sheep and farmer who co grazes with us instofated dectomax for the whole combined flock, but 4 weeks on, our 2 are still looking straggly (although not noticably scratching themselves) - does that happen, even if the mites have gone, or could I be looking at the other mites?  (praying not, cause mine are pretty long fleeced Beulah ewe lambs)

It's not got any worse, which suggests it isn't scab, and its also mainly confined to one of last year's ewes.  The wether with gunge isn't rubbing at all.  I think we're on plan B tomorrow.

Being certain just means you haven't got all the facts

Indeed.  That's the plan B discussed earlier in the thread.
