This was pretty much a mock battle. Even though the boys connected with enough force to lift Bravo's hind feet off the ground!
No one was hurt and the boys went back to grazing side-by-side.
Things are apparently getting a bit more serious. This is what I discovered when I went out to see my rams this morning.
Paco's got a pretty nasty gash over his left eye and a matching slash above his right. Bravo looks like most of the blood on him is from Paco. The only actual injury I could see on Bravo is a scrape on his nose.
I much prefer the relative calm and peace of the ewe pasture. Although, even the girls are doing a bit of head banging. It must be the cool nights.
I use animal crackers to move my girls from one paddock to another. I simply open their gate (with the bucket of cookies in my hand) and walk over to the new area I want them in and throw a few handfuls of cookies into the air. The girls rush into the new paddock and search for the elusive animal crackers. Works slick! ;-) I moved the girls farther away from the boys today, in hopes of minimizing the skirmishes but I suspect it's going to be a long fall....
..."I'm sure glad I don't live with those boys!"
P.S. I tried to post this earlier today but blogger wouldn't let me upload any photos. Maybe I'm using too many?
