Post Torn lamb horn
Hi everyone - ages since I was on the forum:( just wondering if anyone has struck this issue - one of our Wiltshire lambs who is 2.5 months old was covered in blood yesterday. It has seemed to have ripped off the entire outer casing of its horn and left with a bloody stump! Being the weekend of course I have no antiseptic purple spray - any suggestions as really worried about the flies etc? Cheers Tracey

A bit of detol in some water would do the trick to clean it up as well. Prob won't help with the flies though.
