In spite of the gorgeous, Indian Summer weather, my rams (and ewes!) sense changes in the air. Of course, it doesn't help that Alice stands by the fence, batting her eyelashes and wagging her tail at the boys!
I keep an empty paddock and at least two fence lines between the boys and the girls. The fact is, Bling and Night will probably not have the opportunity to "get to know any of the girls" this year. Unless someone wants to LEASE one of them...
I haven't decided if I will use Moon this year either. I'm only breeding 3 girls and I'm leaning toward using Hunter with them. It would make my life much easier if I only have one breeding group, a bachelor group and an unbred ewe group. I've still got a couple of weeks to decide. I don't put my breeding groups together until Thanksgiving weekend.
"Mom said I've earned a rest this year. She said I deserve it because I had twins my first year and triplets my second. I guess I'll be in charge of keeping an eye on all of the ewe lambs and keeping them out of trouble!"
"You mean like PICKER BUSHES???"
Dreamer will have her work cut out for her!
