    I am weening my calfs and my neighbor gave me 3 older lambs I already have one BIG dorpa sheep that stays with the calfs but the calfs chase the little sheep around and they are scared of them the little sheep may die of dehydration if they don't stop chasing them what should I do?

    They should get used to each other. Right now it's all fun and games. Lol! If your worried about dehydration you may have to separate them for a while.
    Are they showing any heat stress? Have you not seen them drink? What is leading you to be concerned? :)

    I haven't seen them drink but we have a dam and they have seen a dam before so maybe they have drunk out of it, I think they haven't been weened yet and it is hot here
