I have inherited two corridale x lambs - they are on our block in Checiot and I need to know more about drenching and vacinations.:confused:

...I assume they are at least 4 months old.. So they should have had or will need two shots of vaccine 5 in one ...you can sometimes get single doses from the vet or borrow some off another LSB or farmer. The shots are required 4 to six weeks apart.
If thye have been recently weaned, they may also need a drench, again the vet may provide single doses...you will need to weight them. You can do it on bathroom scales if you need to. However if they look healthy, no scouring and pooping pellets they may be ok... Check the poop and you may see segments of tape worm ....if there is lots and the lambs are a bit scrawny they will need a drench. You can get a FEC a done but for two sheep hardly worth it
What is the fate of these sheep, ........if you are going to put them in the freezer in the next month or so ....it's probably not worth vaccinating.

Thanks for the reply.
These two are not for the freezer.
Both are about 6 months old.
Certainly in good nick.
Poop is looking good.
No scouring at all.
Eating grass well and are drinking water well.
They were drenched by the former owners last week and I took them as they were always out of water - they look surprisingly well.
Ideally - I am looking at building a shelter in their paddock, plenty of feed, then the neighbours ram can have a look at see what happens after that.

I want someone to just look after my land, and there is no charge for 1 or two horse grazing.
- Land size is about 2,000 sqm (empty) one section land, no property as of yet there and it is located in Tokoroa. If anyone is interested please let me know.
- Land is locked and got exit on both sides, with gates. Going to put a new padlock, and it's currently fully fenced.
- there is a big garage so the horse can stay over-night if owner wants to lock that garage. Happy to support installing a padlock, not sure how much that's going to cost as the moment there is no padlock and i think the garage door is broken (so if owner is happy to contribute would be good but I'm happy to consider fixing that not part of this free deal).

If anyone is interested, please me know. Sohrab 021 804 106

Condition: Must look after the land, make sure grass doesn't grow very high and/or neighbour doesn't complain.
