Rams
« on: June 30, 2015, 10:37:03 pm »
Ok so we ve gone for a Suffolk  ram for starters, bit goofy again, whats new  :innocent: we had a ewe jump in with next doors Suffolk running with texel ewes, she lambed in feb along  a good month before the flock, the big clue was the black raddle she was sporting lol  and so we have this strapping lamb, a beauty she is, and we ve been rather taken with her, so we having the dad.  Now I know it s a bit off the wall but the ewe wasn't what I would call one of our best ewes so I look forward to seeing what he throws with our rangier stronger ewes.


Still want a charmoise though  :innocent:

The suffolk is a super looking ewe. It's worth giving this new chap a try for sure. A ram is definatly half the flock and a good ram is sooo worth the money. Its not always easy to convince people of that when they see rams as surplus stock destined for meat.


Can you tell I have some super rams for sale this year.........?

Thank you.  Wanted a pic of her standing nice but she knew I was on to her lol.  Love that pic though, the ones behind her from last group to lamb, early April.  Most of the twins were later.  Used a younger ram, a son of my  Patch, a favourite of mine. 


We split this week, worming lams so  taking shearlings and culls out as one or two boys getting a bit fruity.

Very smart sheep.   The flowering foxgloves might not be such a good idea though.  Although they're unlikely to eat them, they just might - highly toxic  :(

Ahhh Deere, she's a pain in the proverbial at shearing time, she loves to stand under the platform and she thinks she does a good job running up and down the race yapping, the ewes ignore her, I however ended up putting her away after a while, she did my nut in lol.

Our terrier does much the same and always looks so pleased at the work shes helped us with.

Sheared the last of our ewes here yesterday and had a lamb constantly stood by the shearer shouting for mum. Thing is, mum was shorn 1st and grazing down the bottom of the paddock, probably glad of the peace, unlike the shearer who got a headache!
