Is it ewes that are still being suckled?  I too would suspect orf first of all.  If still being suckled check the mouths of the lambs.

No she had lambs and they have come off her they didn't want to suckle so a friend of mine who had the ewe at the time took the lamb off her and raised it as a pet. I have recently taken on the ewe but before I condemn her I'd like to see if it was cureable

Ok I'll try to do that that's a good idea I don't have a account with them but once I get home this afternoon I'll try and set that up.
I don't think its orf or it would have effected the lambs when she had them plus my friend has been touching her teats over the past few months checking on them and he hasn't picked up anything. That orf is quite contagious is it not??? No expert just from what I have tried to read up!

Is there any one that's had warts on the teats of there ewes what did they do???

Not Orf.

Not 100% sure what it is, but it could just be a wart, papilloma virus etc.

How would I treat that??? Can I get rid of it it was stopping the lambs suckling last season was a lot bigger then apparently but thought if I could get rid of it before next year it would save the same problem then

No idea. If its stopping lambs sucking it probably a culling offence.

I may be harsh though.

That's kind of why I took her on I had a few ewes off him for the freezer but I don't really need to kill them all at once. If she was treatable id at least give her another season with a lamb.. Big if though.....might sound Daft but would one of these wart sprays work for humans the ones that freeze the wart ?? Don't want to damage the teat either
