How can you argue with the girls?
I like your last year's lambs, it's a nice cross.

They even loved the big ugly Border Leicester so they are just tarts and trollops. LOL. I went out to check on them and they are all lying down, cosy as can be, in the stable. He was standing up but right in their midst, which is good, he'll accept that this is his flock and I can stop worrying about him trying out our fences.
If he is here long enough to get any of last year's ewe lambs in lamb, they'll be even more Dorper-ish next year, but next year I doubt he'll be loaning us a youngster he just bought. $1200 he paid for him and he's only 4 months old.

That's really young! Do you have a pick-up guy coming for the girls that don't catch?

The big fellow I'm using is 2 or 3 years old, the youngster he just bought won't be used probably till next season, although ..... he did tell me of 5 month old Dorpers that were getting ewes in lamb . No, I don't worry about any that fail to get in lamb. I'll send this ram home in a couple of months so we don't get Summer lambs, any that miss just get a rest, or extra growing time.
