Our Vet Visits the Farm

Dr. Culbertson D.V.M. came to the farm last week to see our youngest Dor Galen ram. He was born April 29th and we attempted to castrate him when he was two days old. We thought we had both testicles in the scrotum before we banded him, but one week later, my husband could not feel anything in the scrotal sac.
We called Dr. Culbertson for an assessment and took the band off as suggested by his staff. The vet arrived on May 12th as scheduled and examined him. He could feel nothing in the scrotal sac or the lamb's abdomen. He thought there might remain some residual tissue in the sac so he reapplied the band and suggested we wait until he was four months old then re examine him for any intact testicles. It was fun to have the vet out and see our farm, I asked if I could get a pic of him for the blog and he gave permission. I will post it here after  we get it uploaded  to the computer......
