Hoof Trimming Takes a New Turn

No more sheep-tipping! After our last back-breaking session of tipping our 250-lb ewes into a sheep chair and then trying to avoid getting kicked in the face as we trimmed their feet, I invested in a “Roll O’Matic” turn-table. Lolo and I rolled it out for its maiden voyage today. Things went relatively smoothly, and we developed a long list of adjustments and improvements to make it work better for us. Far easier on the back than the sheep-chair.
