I need to start taking some of the boys out in the next week. Having just sheared my sheep myself :thumbsup:  , I can see the ewes condition and there are only a few that need to put on weight. I was thinking I could leave ewe lambs with their mums to help them grow on a bit. Still got good grass and it would be easier to keep everyone separated i I just had a field or rams/ram lambs and ewes/ewe lambs.  Any down sides to doing this?

Also what's best way to introduce ram lambs to older rams, especially as some of them have horns annd some not?
