    best way too

we've got a couple here,
Had one at the front of the green house couple of years ago,  OH got hes gun    and took aim  oh.gif  

it was like slow motion as we stood their and watched him take air towards the green house, we were all expecting the worse oh.gif   ....................no fox......no greenhouse!!

the fox ended up in a permanent sleep in the middle of the untouched and intact green house    

blummin cow went thru it a few days after along with the door and a piece of glass!!

well after struggling with some of the sheeps feet for quite along time, and after footbaths, injecting, teramycin spray, purple spray, swearing and saying please along with everything else, i decided yesterday to try jens suggestion of tumeric    

yeh like heck will it work!!! :evil9:

so off i went with a bag full of the stuff, and turned the shed into a curry house    

This morning atleast 3/4s of the ewes that were extemely tender are now putting there feet down and attempting to walk on them    

ok early days, but i will reapply some more later on and see how they are tomorrow    

Thanks Jen  

it was looking like a next stop last stop for them, but if they keep going well, they'l be out there lambing with the rest this time next year

I always use stockholm on cuts, seals them up and they always heal up nice!

Had a boar last year with a cut 4 inches across, 2 inches deep on shoulder, tarred it up, 8 weeks later i showed him with harly any evidence of the cut!

not if its diluted and brushed on

it should just leave a thin film on the foot that way, making a barrier to help stop any frther infection

allso they are all in now , so their not walking around on mud and wet grass, so this should help

Heres one that works for warts on both animals and humans. Simply paint them for a few days with castor oil. The warts will turn soft and literally slough off.
I was told this by an old farmer who used to to use this method to remove warts from his cows teats. The method was so successful that he also used it on the holiday makers kids. They didn't disappear but their warts did.
Hawkeye knows the farmer
