Have fun! Putting a sheep on it's hiney is tricky. I wish I had a class in that before we got started! If you want to impress your instructor, ask about the FAMACHA test for internal parasites. It involves checking the color of their eyelid membranes and is easiest done while they're sitting down.
It's funny because when they said they would teach us how to put a sheep on it's back, I thought it couldn't actually be that hard... but I suppose they are alive and they don't particularly want to be turned upside down. It should be interesting
I will definitely have a read up on FAMACHA, then casually bring it up in class as if it's nothing.. haha.. Thanks
Oooh Chocolatebutton your course sounds very exciting! Is it full or part-time? I'm curious as I wonder if there is anything like this near me (I'm in the UK too).
Hey Trekky, the course is full time but aimed at adults so it is only 3.5 days on campus. The college is in Winchester, I am actually moving from London to do the course as there is no where in London that has the course or facilities. I will PM you a link
