Had success at grafting an orphan this morning with a pelt of a dead lamb. I tried to search to see how long I should leave the skin on the orphan, but didn't find anything. Thoughts? It is hot out there!
You should be able to take it off in the morning. It will be pretty gamey by then, and you don't want flies. If she is taking good care of it without too much suspicion and her milk is passing through it things should be fine.
Thanks. That was what I was thinking based on the heat and the fact they still look like a happy family when I just checked on them! I'm sure that pelt is starting to definitely smell "different" to the ewe.
