Shepherdess feeder spares
« on: January 20, 2016, 10:14:59 am »
Does anybody know where I can get the feed line tubes for a shepherdess? I only want the tubes, got valves, but can't seem to find them separately anywhere. Or anything else I could use as a substitute?

I think they are one sealed unit, so they don't sell them seperately?

Thanks yes I know they do the whole kit it's just I only wanted the tubing. Found the valves separately in Mole Valley for a couple of quid each and don't need to replace anything else bar the tubing...

Try an aquarium/pond suppliers, they usually sell tubing of all sorts of sizes.

Hi Twizzel,
We have used these tubes - also from Mole Valley, but in the calf section. Seems to work fine with our 'Ewe 2' shepherdess bucket.
