This is one of my worst times of year- taking the rams out of their breeding groups and putting them back together. During this time they have forgotten whose the dominant ram and have to reestablish themselves. They bash each other until they figure it out. I place them in a pen with some tires on a fence post in the middle to try to minimize the damage they can do. I also sprinkle them with cheap perfume to see if that confuses them a little. Then I let them go at it and hope to much damage isn’t done to each other or the barn. So far so good but we’ll see how they look tomorrow. This year my other ram James is injured so he can’t help diffuse the violence so we’ll see what happens. When James gets better we’ll have to start this process over again- what fun!
