This December we said goodbye to one our flock.
Erik has been our ram for the past two breeding seasons. He came to us from a local Suffolk farm when he was a little over a year old. He has typically been kind and non-aggressive. However, this fall he really matured, as a 3 year old ram should. Our facilities are not yet equipped to deal with a large, aggressive ram. And with the little one running around we just don't want to risk it. We additionally don't have the space to handle two rams. After two breeding seasons our flock has about 35% of Erick's daughters. We will not breed them back to him, which means we either need two rams, or a new ram. So after he was finished with the 2015 breading season we sold Erik to a farm that could handle him better. We wish him the best of luck with his new flock of ladies.
We are now on the search for a new, young ram for 2016.
