which we open, guide the tail into and then close it onto the tail. The rubber band closes off the circulation to the tail and in a few days will fall off. It seems cruel but a sheep with a tail is a dirty mess. The fecal matter will build up atracting flies, maggots and infection.
Here are "Roses" two girls right after and they had a fit. They scooted, dropped to the ground and kicked. "Belle's" boys did fine. We actually did their tails on Thursday and they didn't even flinch, and today we did their testicles and still they act like it's nothing!
This little girl pictured to the right, actually dropped to the ground and began to kick, contorted her body and looked like she was having a seizure! Poor baby lamb, but in the future it will be the best thing we ever did for her!
