Camp? We're at camp? What's 'camp'?
Ram lambs are so easy to work with compared to ewe lambs. The ewe lambs are full of high drama like teenage girls - they scream and throw their hands into the air, roll their eyes and run away for no reason. The boys are like surfer beach bums - all laid back and cool about everything and willing to go where you want without too much arguement as long as it doesn't look downright scary or difficult.
OK, this looks familiar.
We have a creep area set up as in the lower barn with vertical rollers set too closely for the big rams to get through so the lambs have a safe place to eat a little extra hay, a nibble of grain at night or just hang out without the big rams bossing them around.
Dudes, check it out..... you can see the whole yard from back here.
Um, yeah, that's cool.....but do you see my mom?
Some of the little boys are more needy than others and they called for their moms for the rest of the day and off and on most of last night, but by this morning they were pretty well adjusted and got down to the business of just grazing and learning their new boundaries.
Grass is grass no matter where you are....let's eat!
Congrats, boys. Have a great summer.
