  1. Have a good weekend! Glad you got everything back under control… so far. 😉 Your boys are so nice… I cannot imagine them getting in to trouble while you’re away. 😀

  2. You don’t leave any time between designated rams and clean-up rams? Couldn’t there be some questions of paternity?

    On a completely different topic, I spun up a one-ounce sample of Jacob today that I just LOVED. So much so that I started wondering if you have any roving that you’d want to trade for some of Braveheart’s roving. Not that I NEED any fiber, but at least I wouldn’t be ADDING to my S.A.B.L.E.

  3. I’m not sure I would include Wrangler in that blanket statement. The little rat was picking fights with Reno and Junior and they kept walking away from him until finally Junior had had enough. They seem to have it worked out now 🙂

    I use marking paint on the rams and I know who has been bred and how dark the color is and can tell if they are rebred. I usually put a different color on the clean up ram, but I only have the one color this year – poor planning on my part 🙂

    Isn’t ‘nice’ Jacob wonderful! I left a comment on your blog.

  4. Very interesting and informative. Does this usually work to keep the rams getting along? I have not had any good luck keeping rams together, and it is not fun having them kill each other.

    I have noticed Goth is bored with the ewes in his pen and now will need to work at keeping him away from my new, and young ram after I move his ewes out….as his boredom seems to be causing him to be rough with the girls.He is pretty good at taking fences and barriers down…..can’t keep a decent fence around the sheep because of ramming. I do enjoy watching my rams though and getting new lambs in the spring.
