Two more lambs this morning, both ewes.
Joel docked their tails while their mom looked on and commented. We didn't dock tails when we first got the sheep many years ago until we discovered what a nasty mess sheep's tails can become. Not only does it make shearing hard but the dung in the tails attracts flies and can create skin infections. So now they go right away. The sheep don't seem to notice.
