|im writing a speach for perpared public speeking and ran out of ideas.|
|wether101||Posted 01/21/10 01:44PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|Some good strategies would be to raise the feeder and make a block so that the lamb would make its rear end more muscled, walking, and that is about it|

|bad idea unless you want a knot in thier back, also this really breaks down around their loin edges.

|Depending on who you are going to be presenting this to, I would be careful putting a mention of a muzzle or a track dog in your speech. Unless people are engaged in the show lamb business they will not understand either concept. JMO|

|i like to let my lamb loose in a area and chase him untill he/shes tired and either lets me walk up to him/her or walks up to me work great for me so far learned it from a guy whos been breeding sheep for about 30 years and all his children would get grands and researves he said its like a track runner builds muscle on te lamb and makes the legs and rump really muscular|

|wether101, you also can lead to prolapse.|
|CoonHunter||Posted 01/22/10 07:03AM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|isometrics is a good exercise to put in a speech. |
|SHADOWRAN||Posted 01/22/10 11:40AM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|we use halters and build up to a run and sprints, that way the kids are with the lambs always, I would use a treadmill or track if we had one.
we also use isometrics, also remember some lambs don't need that much excercise because they need to grow or bred real good with lots of muscle.

|how long do you hot walk a lamb? Will a horse
|KnittyCat||Posted 03/05/10 11:44PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|Feeding ramps can also make it easier for lambs to prolapse.|
|LambLover21||Posted 03/06/10 01:22PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|I sprint mine about 400yrds down our driveway, then let them run back, let go of their halter. they always know whos boss in the showring and have never gotten away from me, in showmanship, thats like the death sentance. :)|

|well for me i have done running,putting them on a block all sorts of things but last year i tried jumping my lambs and that really worked for me kinda time consuming but it worked|
|Purplebanner||Posted 06/02/11 01:44PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|Sprinting lambs on a track, or quickly walking them on a treadmill are methods that work the best. If you simply walk your lambs that is not enough.|

|How do you "jump" a lamb, Ive been curious, never really understand how to exercise them that way?
|TXsheepRaiser||Posted 06/02/11 08:27PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|old post, but tracking is the best that i know. The treadmill trails behind it..
|KnittyCat||Posted 06/03/11 06:28PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|Old post like Tyler said but jumps are probably not a good idea (in case someone is searching this later)|
|boss94||Posted 06/05/11 01:55PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|didnt realize it was a old post when I asked, sorry :/ just was curious ... thanks :)
|TXsheepRaiser||Posted 06/05/11 02:14PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|A little word of advice, Dont ever do jumps..
|DonD1||Posted 06/05/11 02:35PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|Boss94, the problem with jumps is how a lamb jumps. Too much of the exercised muscles are in the front shoulder and you don't hear judges ever saying, "I'd gone with this lamb if his shoulders were just a little bigger".
Note to other MyLamber's, TheDad1 nickname is going to be retired and replaced with the more personal "DonD1".
|KnittyCat||Posted 06/05/11 02:57PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|Don, You da one alright. LOL! Just kidding. |
|Allisonb||Posted 06/07/11 09:52PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|Treadmills and tracking are the best way to go|

|How long should you exercise a lamb.we have 5 weeks before fair and need to hold one and have one lose weight . I have been exerciseing on treadmill for 10 mins and don't know if that is enough. and feeding 3lbs a day should i add oats. more protien? any advise would help.|

|start a new post and you will get more responses this one is 2 years old
|FirstLamb||Posted 10/05/12 12:24PM Changed 10/05/12 12:25PM|
|to DonD1, you statement, "I'd gone with this lamb if his shoulders were just a little bigger", my daughter got 2nd in her class because the judge told her this. he told her he really liked her lamb but he went with the other one because it had more muscle from the shoulders up.|
|Sdfam||Posted 10/05/12 12:50PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|First lamb the judge was probably using different terminology meaning simply more rack shape. |
|SHADOWRAN||Posted 10/05/12 01:10PM Changed 00/00/00 12:00AM|
|Firstlamb and Sdfam this is a old post very old we try not to bring up older posts because of cost to the owner of the site|

|For my lamb i put a block under his feed so he will streach. Also i walk him everyday and taught him how to jump our water hose 2 ft off the ground.|
|KaySoGreat||Posted 12/02/12 06:50PM Changed 12/02/12 06:53PM|
1)I walk mine up and down a ramp but dont use a steep one just a slight ramp
2)I run my lamb, he loves it and prances Around while i chase him, but make sure he trust you first so u can catch him after
3) have a feed bucket raised high so he has to stretch to eat, but not so high where the edge of the bucket chokes him
(: those are some hope i helped!
