|Not sure, we only use reverse and work back legs only. You need to start them slow until they get used to it. Ours end up anywhere between 2.0 - 3.0 mph for as much as 3-5 minutes. We start them at about 0.5 - 1 mph and sometimes have to use hands to move legs for them at first. I do know we read a LOT of info before we started treadmilling. There is a fine line where enough is enough and too much just ruined the lamb. Use the search feature and study up.|

|Thanks for the advise... when you say back legs only, does that mean that gives the best results... Ill read up on it, but I would like your opinion. one of the three lambs we have only runs backwards on all fours...

|Look up treadmills on search and pay close attention to sheep1. Lots of good advice.|
