This is a sad day coming soon, when we will be taking yearling rams & our 2 yr. old ram "off to market". 
When we bought Mortimer our primary ram he was approx. 7months old, his horns were not developed enough to know if they were going to be good.  This past year as his horns continued to grow it was obvious that they would eventually cause him problems.  The horns are too close to his cheeks.  This is not the type of horn struction that we want to pass along to future lambs that we raise.

  1. That is the hard, sad part about using young rams; you just don't know yet if you are passing on good genes in horns OR fleece! And if you find out that you didn't, then you have to cull even more....
