Back to Rona Lodge for a very late breakfast, which sustained us through the next task, sorting sheep out. Spot on is necessary to keep the sheep free of ticks, the infestation here is pretty bad and has caused problems for both animals and visitors. We castrated the new tup lambs, tagged and tailed them then turned them out to the outrun, keeping in Richard’s sheep which escaped last month.
Just as we were finishing up, Kevin, one of the cottage guests arrived looking worried, his terrier had returned from a chase in the forest round the cottage with a very bad gash on her rear end and would I come and look at it. Loaded up with penicillin, gloves, pills, needles we went to Dry Harbour to look at the doggie, one look was enough and next thing was a call to Rhona the Vet in Portree who confirm my fear that the terrier needed a few stitches. So at 5 o’clock we headed off to Portree in MV Rona. 3 hours later we arrived back with one very relieved owner and a very (sore) dozy/drugged doggy!! Well done Rhona.
Ah well just another day.
