    Re: Sheep sponge

    I have known one get pulled out of a goat by another goat if that helps. A phone call to a vet should not cost you anything and will give you a better answer than what I can give you.

    It is supposed to just drop out when the pin at the top is removed. A tap with a sledgehammer will have swollen the end so that it will not fit down the hole anymore.
