I AM CHANGING MY SHEEP PROGRAM. Not a big change, but one that I maybe wouldn't have researched a bit more if I hadn't been called out by a negative comment.
Hoof trimming over this past year has been a struggle. Not in the way that I've neglected to do it... but that I now realize they weren't scheduled frequently enough.
So today, is day one of a new system.
I am going to do better..
I also share with you my vaccination protocol, but ALWAYS design your own with your vet as every farm battles different health issues. So this program may not work for your sheep.

I love you and your channel so much more because you listened to your critics as hard as it may have been and you realized you were wrong and decided to change. It also shows how much you love your animals because you have willingly given yourself more work to make their life better. Thank you Sandi I love you

Yeow! How many hundred sheep do you raise? Seems like you'll be doing thousands of pedicures. Watch out for carpel tunnel! Maybe use a combination of hoof shears and an electric sheep hoof grinder?

My grandparents had sheeps and we used to bath them in May, before they go to the pasture , they would get meds against parasite and Bath. Not sure do you do that . But I hated cutting their hooves and wool .

Have you ever just changed out the blades on your Felco trimmers instead of buying a new pair? It’s really easy to change them. I use Felco horticulture trimmers in my line of work. I have had the same handles for 20 years but changed out the blades many, many times. It’s much less expensive that way and it’s like have a new pair all over again.

Hi Sandi, I saw a couple of your videos, and I wanted to get a turntable like yours, but I can't find the veno table you have. I would think I would like it better than the other one you tested since my sheep aren't real big and they wouldn't slide down too deep and their feet would still stick out for trimming. Sound logical??? Let me know where to buy one, Thanks, Mark Baker

It’s great that you are improving welfare. But I don’t know why a sanctuary is less trustworthy- they are probably the only place that can tell you from what’s in best interest of the animals rather than clouded by economic decisions. What you then do with that info is up to you. However if you are concerned for their wellbeing, the natural progression of that is to think is this all necessary at all. If it was dogs would you be comfortable with the breeding to kill cycles, even if their fur or flesh is used by us ? You sound like a compassionate person and I think when you start on that path of thinking the inevitable conclusion is to just stop breeding and killing them.

Hooves certainly grow fast when there is little abrasion. My comment is not related to hooves and not criticism but noticed you feed some young weak lambs with a bottle. I thought you should know about one of the handiest gadgets any sheep farmer can have to save weak lambs. It is the Rosilyn tube feeder that is very easy to get a feed into any lamb that for any reason is not drinking. The problem when you feed with a bottle and teat is when the lamb is weak and doesn’t swallow, the milk can run into the lungs - not a good outcome.

In your Gallagher can you bring up a list of those sheep that have/have not had something done ie. hooves, vaccinations, udder checks, or whatever it is that you are doing or have done. I know you usually work by group so finding an individual sheep might be difficult but it may help you to keep track of who's had what done or not done.

Hello Sandi, I watch a AM-posts gent by the name of Graham from Scotland who is a cow hoof trimmer. He uses a titanium rotary grinder and he can trim a cows hooves in seconds to minutes. I bring this up as info only in case you find this informative and perhaps you could find a smaller hand held grinder to ease your process. I love your passion for your animals and applaud your efforts to raise healthy and happy sheep. Bless your kind and gentle heart. Hugs and keep up the great work.

Did you know you can order new blades for your felco shears for slightly less than the new green shears. I looked it up cause I could see the flat head screws on the handles. I’m curious if you could possibly get an even better deal on buying the blades in bulk once you see if replacement blades are worth it.

I just came across your Channel a few days ago and been binge watching so many of your videos. Taking criticism is HARD especially when people deliver it hateful/angry; which isn’t fair. You’re amazing for reevaluating your system and not only realizing it can be better but you’re making it better while educating others along the way. Don’t shame yourself, give yourself grace. Thank you for opening my eyes to a different perspective with myself is receiving criticism that I may not like there also may be some truth into it.

It's not that their hooves grow faster on soft ground, it's that the hooves don't wear down effectively. If they were outside where there are rocky, gravely and sandy areas, their hooves would wear down faster. But since yours are always on straw, they don't wear down as quickly, so yees, they have to be trimmed more often. Sheep's feet also wont do well if the environment that they are walking on day in and out is soggy. If their feet are always damp they get too soft and can rot and are more susceptible to infections. Bad things can happen if they are forced to stand in their own waste too. Urine burns their hooves and they can peel away and all sorts of bad things happen. Your bedding there looks pretty clean and dry though. Your problem is it's just soft, so trimming is needed more often.

Have u seen the hoof doctor hes a guy that has a mobile cattle chute that holds their hooves up and he uses a flat rotating grinder and it takes 30 seconds or less per hoof. a small grinder wd b much faster n easier for u. look up his channel.

Mrs. Brock, there are a lot of haters out there who think they know it all. You are learning like we all have to do in our lives every day. There is no doubt you care and do your very best for your sheep. Like with us we raise cattle and there are so many different variations based on so many different things you have to try and see what works best for you in your situation. We have family who lives in Ohio and raises the same breed we do and there are things that work better for them than it does for us and we are only 40 miles apart in Indiana. You have to as you said try and see what is best for you and your sheep. And honestly, it is like when I pull someone over one-stop will not be like the next one. But you care and no one can say you don't and as time goes you will learn more and more. Your channel is great and I enjoy watching you and your family. Don't late the way some say things there are a lot of arrogant people out there who think they know it all and trust me they do not. But you are a good person and try to do your best and you have checked into things and you have an open mind and you will find out which way is best for you. Take care and God Bless!!!

Question re schedule... why not schedule for every 3 months and spend a month trimming them all a but at a time in numbers you can manage? Eg if you have 3 lots, trim one lot per month and trim 7 per day from that lot. It breaks it into something more manageable.

Its shows how much you actually care. You learn and you improve. It takes a lot to admit if you make a mistake. Dont feel horrible but improve. They shouldn't have been so horrible but j am really impressed you have learnt and are improving. That makes you a better farmer.

I've been doing what I do for 61 years. I did it for 30 some-odd years when I was challenged on something. When I accepted the challenge, I discovered that I was wrong, and had been for those thirty some-odd years. I had way too much pride to swollow all at once, so it took me some time to change my approach. The result was amazing and I'm now grateful for the challenge. The point is, we should be learning all the time. I'm now 165 years old (well, really only 78, but it feels...) and I have learned to learn. You do a wonderful job and what you learned will serve you well. As for the meanness of the commenter, try to let it roll off. Replace those damaged feelings with your great attitude. I love watching your videos. Who'duv thunk I would be attracted to sheep. A complete surprise to me.

Thumbs up for making change in management. About your felco shears, the person sharpening them must have made a mistake because the felco shears usually can be shapened to a better than factory state. I have sharpened mine at least 20 times by now and they are as good if not better than factory state. i just feel sorry that you are "throwing" that much money away its not good buisness.
RunningRoan 5 ամիս առաջ
Have you considered using an angle grinder for hoof trimming? It would allow you to take off some sole and give you a little more time in between hoof trimmings. It’s hard to get any sole off with the hand shears. The grinder is easier on your hands too. They make specialized electric hoof trimmers (like Hoof Boss) but an angle grinder works with the right disc that removes hoof material at a rate you’re comfortable with.

No, the haters aren't right. I get your point on valid criticism, but there's a way of delivering helpful, constructive criticism, and then there's a way of being a c**t. Being a c**t is not ok. Just sayin'. Love your channel. My advice, for what it's worth (which ain't much), ignore the haters. Call out the people who make a valid criticism in a civil manner. Give the haters their due, which is, precisely, nothing. At least until they grow up and learn how to talk like an adult.

Definitely not shame on you, no matter what field you work in these days every day is a school day whether you are learning something completely new or the smallest detail has changed in your processes, it’s what you do with that learning going forward and you have planned the change already after confirming it was correct so a big thumbs up to you, ps not a farmer but so intrigued with your way of life through your and Mark’s lenses, both thank you.

People can give advice or tell you that you have something wrong without being rude or hating, though. Still no excuse for their choice of hateful words. Don't feel so bad. It's a learning experience. Everyone learns every day.
