New Ram Pics!

We got a chance tonight to get some pictures of the new Wild Rose Farm Rambouillet ram. First, the close-up "personality" shot. The sheared stripe on his right side is where the ultrasound test is taken for LEA or loin-eye area. All of the other rams were sheared after the test, but since he is a wool breed, his fleece was left on. The second picture is the "business end" for all of our sheep friends. This ram has "scurs", not horns like our older Rambouillet ram. You can see the dark spot on his head - that's the small bit of horn. Horned rams seem to sell better in the western range area and polled rams seem to sell better in the eastern states.
