Spin Doctor

December 29, 2015

For Christmas, I gave Bob a turn table called the Spin Doctor, made by Sydell in South Dakota. It was really a present for both of us. In the past, while Bob trimmed feet on the sheep I had to hold their legs from kicking. The task was hard on his back and dangerous for me as the ewes thrashed around.

With this special chute, the ewe (or ram, in these photos) is squeezed and turned on its side for treatment.

Bob is grinding a bad foot on one of our Hampshire rams.
