I'm after some advice, once again. Four weeks ago one of my Dorpers had twins and they both looked well.
However, four days in and one of the two lambs started limping badly, not putting any weight on one of the two front legs.
At the time I couldn't see anything wrong with its leg or foot, so I hoped that he would eventually get better on its on.
I monitored the young lamb and noticed that he has been drinking, growing, running and playing like any other happy lamb... but just on three legs.
Today, although he seemed to be putting a bit (still very little) of weight on the fourth leg, I managed to catch him to have another look at his leg/foot. I have noticed that one of the pads of the hoof in question has a cavity and I assume that this is the problem. Can anyone tell me what is this all about and if there is anything I can do to improve the poor lamb situation?
