The 'Sheep Workshop' - Mouth Ulcers in a Lamb

The children didn't just get to touch and later hold some of the lambs but they were given a lesson in their care.  Here Rene is explaining that lambs can get mouth ulcers (take a look and you will see the redness in the lamb's mouth).  This is cured by using iodised glycerine.  The mouth ulcers are also called muguet in France, which funnily enough the the French word for Lily of the Valley.


 Les enfants n'ont pas seulement touché et tenu certains agneaux, ils ont aussi  appris comment les soigner. Ici, René est en train d'expliquer  que les agneaux peuvent avoir des aphtes (regardez bien et vous verrez la rougeur dans la bouche de l'agneau). Ceci se  guérit à l'aide de glycérine iodée. Les aphtes sont également appelés "muguet."
