Exercising Lambs.
« on: May 16, 2011, 11:29:36 AM »
I was wondering how everyone else works on exercising their lambs. I put mine on a track with about 2ft jumps and later work on the handling such as bracing.

Just because I own the ugliest cow in the world doesn't mean I can't be proud as heck of her. It also doesn't change my love of the game when she gets last every time.

We always used a chariot connected to a rideing mower and we had a long run with plastic barrels cut in half and whole on their side they had to jump to get from the water on one end to the other with feed.

Absolutely! We worked lambs and goats along side each other, and they loved jumping on the barrels all day long. (while the goats played, we had a southdown that would place his front legs atop the barrel and slide down the rest of the way. lol

Best way to exercise your sheep is either dogs, or treadmill.
My top priorities in life as a highschooler are, showing, grades, girls, judging, showing, girls, girls, and i guess my family(:
