Although he has Dickie, our wether, for company, Leo, our tup, looks a bit lonesome. Our six in-lamb ewes and three ewe lambs are running together, so I wondered if I culd put Leo and Dickie in with them without a) the ewes being upset and b) the lambs being tupped.

Having asked the vet, the TAS forum and the RFBS, the consensus is "No". So Leo will just have to make do with Dickie until any tup lambs are weaned in the summer.

I did move the two of them to a nicer, drier paddock today so hopefully, he'll cheer up a bit.
