Hi I am 14 years of age living in NSW. My father wanted to get two weaned lambs to live in our small paddock in our backyard to have as pets and keep the grass down (photo of backyard included, + to roam around the perimeter of then house).
He only was wanting to have them temporarily but I have desperately wanted a poddy lamb for quite sometime, he said if we were to we would get some from our friends down the road.
I have been researching and reading about poddy lamb and about how to feed them (mixtures, how much, how often, and just how), shelter them, a bit on illnesses as well as a few things here and there about keeping them warm and anything else I could find.
I was really hoping I could get some direct information that worked and good mixtures, just all those things on how to look after them as I do not want them to die.
I would get them during the holidays and care for them, then I would be able to take them back to my boarding school and see them in the morning, twice during the day, in the afternoon and once before nightfall I know this seems silly but by the time I was back at school they wouldn't need night time feeds.
Please leave any information you have that would be extremely helpful!! Thank you,
