Well Neville and his ewes are getting along well. He is very polite. Even let me catch all of my ewes for their rabies vaccination boosters when the vet came. You would think he would have a problem with me separating them out in a catch pen and then going in to get a few that would not leave him, but he was great. He is such a good ram. I have a pretty good idea who is in season and will lamb first as them seem to follow him closely. They too seem to appreciate his gentle nature. I was so pleased with last years lambs, I am really looking forward to lambs from him again this spring. In his group to lamb here he has: two kats (one black, one fawn), two gullies (also one black and one fawn-both I think are modified), two solid moorit, one solid black that I do think is actually modified rather than iset, two grey flecket, one fawn and one black flecket, one black and one musket HST. All my adult ewes. All the big B ewes carry little b, with the exception of Hester. She is BB. There should be lots of variety of colors, patterns, and even a few spots again!
