Yet another passing on the farm...

Yet another one of our beloved animals has passed away this year, we sure have had a very bad year. Our wether "Scar" passed away this week. The picture on the left is him getting sheared and he is in the picture on the right in the right hand corner. He had gotten rot under his skin back in the winter and just would not stop rubbing it. We tried everything to keep it at bay and from not getting infected. Untimatley we had to put him down due to maggot infestation. In all my years working with animals and wildlife, of for which I am accustomed to seeing regularly, I had never seen anything like this before, they we everywhere. He would not eat or drink and we thought it best to have my friend, Dr Brown come by and put him down. He was the sweetest most gentlest of all our animals and we will miss him...
