Just finished feeding the sheep and ducks. Found a big chunk of wool and soon realized it was a tail. One of the Baby Doll sheep had her tail bit off I presume. Now I'm thinking, "exactly how many Barbados sheep did I see?" I have to go back down and count. We do have mountain lions, but in a year have lost only one sheep to a mountain lion. The mountain lion privelages generally go to the guy across the way with the large flock of goats and the large amount of acreage (we have only 5 acres and houses and roads around). Anyway the one sheep with the missing tail...it's just the wool and skin sheath gone. The bone is there. Not sure what to do. There aren't any sheep vets around here. They generally just tell us use super glue for skin tears and Wound Kote for cuts etc. Does anyone have any advice on what I might do with the remaining part? The bleeding had stopped till she moved around at feed time. Will the rest just fall off, or will new skin grow? I'm thinking it'd be better to band off the remains. She isn't in any stress and is happily munching her hay and let me inspect with no complaints. Yuck. Think we need a donkey or a llama to guardian the sheep. And their night quarters are about 50 feet away from a fairly busy nursing home. Brave mountain lion or coyote.
