Happy Days  :) They look a nice healthy lot.  I like the one with black face and horns - that must be one of the NH crosses.  Very smart.  I think you will be very happy with this lot Andy.

This is the Ram, a pedigree Romney, very large, his name is bubbles, I wont be calling him that !!!!

yes you can see the NH in some of the crosses, they are still a bit skitty and s**t scared of my dog but 3rd day of rounding them up and im sure in a month they will be calmer, I wish I could post a video so you can see my dog rounding them up.

next stage is to register them with the local vet so I can get the teramycin spray ect. 1st lambs due around the 30th January !!!

Very nice too!  Not as nice as my Dorset rams of course, but then I would say that wouldn't I!! ;)  We bought some in lamb ewes a while back which lambed in January  - I remember it well - cold, windy, wet and most of them lambed at night.  But sleepless nights are bad at any time of year, whatever the weather.  Incidentely, what's wrong with 'Bubbles' as a name?  :D  Better than the ubiquitous 'Rambo'!
