Greetings! I am wondering about tail docking, if the tails of two lambs were left without being docked, would cleaning their tails often (How often?) keep away the threat of flystrike? I really do not want to dock the tails, but I don't want to cause suffering later in their lives. If all I would have to do is pay close attention to their tails, and clean them when I see any mess, if that would save their tails, then I could certainly do it. I live in Atlantic Canada. Cape Breton, Nova Scotia to be specific. I read climate can be a factor in this decision. I hope someone can help me. Bye!
