What a lovely boy indeed! Very impressive set of horns.

Boys can't have sugar beet, really? Can anyone explain why that is? (I thought it was high protein that was a potential problem for males).
MALES can certainly eat sugar beet pulp , it is standard feed for sale/show rams ,  "Eblex Better  Returns " recommends  it .  High protein is also not a problem .      Sheep feed often contains CALCINED MAGNESITE   to reduce the chances of grass staggers ,this is the main problem or the infeed balance of CALCIUM and  PHOSPHORUS is wrong for males .
