All our animals are checked 3 or 4 times a day, depending on where we are working on the farm, so day to day welfare is monitored.

The wethers and males have very little handling, but a lot of close contact with us walking through, and a bit of nosey hand feeding. Once a year they are sheared, teeth and feet done and injections.

The females have a bit more checking around birth time, and more handling when the baby is born, but again, a lot of hand feeding.

They can be a bit flightly if startled, but are funny to watch with the dog and each other.
