Normally when she’s been tupped twice, it’s on 2 cycles, 17 days apart. So she’s not held the first service, so returned again. If all your ewes do this, you have a problem with the ram. She won’t stand for a ram if she’s in lamb already.

Some people use different coloured raddles to see which ram has mated each ewe.

Though if you’re not bothered whether your ewes get in lamb or not, there’s no real need to raddle the ram.

aha, thank you very much!  I must have known the 17 days then, just forgotten for the moment!  I'm a bit absent-minded.
