Releasing the Ram Lamb

Rico Suave was anything but suave when we released him with the 10 ewes yesterday.

Imagine a 14-year-old boy trying to woo a group of women in their 20s and 30s.

He chased after the Bob Marley ewe. Round and round the pasture they went until the Bob Marley ewe joined a three or four other ewes.

Next, he chose the Neck Roll ewe. Did he think the chunky girl couldn't run? Run she did.

After a few minutes, he moved onto the Red ewe, who outsprinted him with ease.

"He's got to work on his technique," I said to the spouse.

"He'll figure it out," the spouse replied.

Or else get tired.

Within an hour, he was grazing next to a yearling ewe.
