We had a tiny runt ram lamb last spring. He was such a tiny, homely, weedy little thing that I didn't put a photo of him up on my website. When my good friend Denise came to visit one day, I mentioned how he probably wouldn't bring $5 at market, he was so small. WELL WELL WELL! Luther went home with Denise as a pet and companion for her new Cheviot ewe bottle lamb. :)
Denise called yesterday so upset. Luther bashed he head through the wooden wall of his hut, couldn't get his head out, hung himself up. I will let her pick another ram lamb out of my cull pen this coming year, if she wants. And I hope her Cheviot has a little Shetland-Cheviot baby for her this spring to ease her loss.
I honestly don't miss those horned rams and their desire to remodel their homes. Seems a new window is always needed here and there, lol.
