Big Weekend at Wild Rose Farm!

Notice anything different in this line-up? Yep, that's the new Rambouillet ram in with the ewes. Believe me, he only stopped chasing the ewes around long enough to get some grain. He's wearing his marking harness with a green crayon. We also spray the ewe's ear tag number on her hip. It's easier to read that number (versus her ear tag number) at dusk and it's near where the crayon mark will be anyway. The ram went in on the 28th and as of the 29th, he's marked 5 ewes. A couple of those may not be accurate since he gets a little carried away when he first goes in with the females!
