Separation

We’re about to take the ram lambs out of the mixed lamb group. It’s just about now that they “come into themselves” — their hormones begin to kick in. We don’t want any little surprises arriving in the dead of winter so they’ll go to live with the big boys thus eliminating that possibility.  Many a shepherd has waited a day or two too long. It’s amazing what those little boys can do! I’ve had fleeting thoughts of not lambing at all this coming year. Why does that sound like a confession?

Don't these guys look innocent?!
