Breeding 101

I’ve done it again.  I’ve acted too quickly and now I have two amazingly loving and adorable lambs that won’t be able to breed to make more amazing and adorable lambs.  Apparently, and unbeknownst to me, bottle-fed rams should be CASTRATED (gulp!) because they grow up without a fear of humans.  This lack of fear can become a problem because once they are ready to mate, nothing will stop their aggressive behavior – particularly towards the loving hands that fed them while they were still cute and cuddly infants.  Although I was warned that rams can become aggressive and would need to be penned up separately from the ewes until the intended time for mating came around, no one really stressed the importance of keeping my children away from their pet once Mother Nature took over.  Now we seem to have found ourselves in the difficult situation of choosing to do a nasty thing to this adorable little guy or take our chances with him when he gets older.  I already know the answer.  Welcome to Stonepost Farm – a place for happy, castrated sheep and their adoring families!
