Loss of pigment from coloured hair especially around the eyes, giving the animal a bespectacled appearance (not visible in cattle with white hair around the eyes)
Falling disease – sudden heart failure causing sudden death
Swayback or enzootic ataxia of lambs.
Lambs with this condition cannot coordinate their legs.
They may be severely affected at birth and may be unable to stand; some may be born dead.
Other lambs appear normal at birth but between one and six months they develop an uncoordinated gait.
This condition is caused by impaired development of the central nervous system in the foetus and cannot be reversed by copper treatment once signs appear loss of pigmentation in black sheep.
Because there is usually a wide variation in susceptibility to copper deficiency between individuals within any flock, normal pigmentation in one or two black sheep does not guarantee copper sufficiency among the white-woolled individuals.
Increased incidence in fractures of the long bones and rib bones in lambs.
