Regular readers will be aware that I’ve had a lingering eye infection problem over the past few weeks. Well, it’s still there. Checked the sheep early this morning and discovered a sheep with it’s eye basically useless. No chance of recovery. The other eye is fine though.
I checked the rest (again) and found one other sheep with signs of infection starting in one eye. It’s really frustrating! There isn’t much more I can do, the flock that I found the infection in today were clear and had no infected sheep amongst them, so it’s obviously been lingering a while.
Spoke to the vet and he’s going to come over again on Friday. I’m taking the day off work and I’m going to remove every and any sheep with sign of infection and take her nearer to home. Bad time of year for it to happen too, they have to be out with the ram if I’m going to have lambs in the spring!
Here is a snap of me having given the sheep a bale of hay.
