Today was the day, finally, that we separated the ram lambs (who are now 4 1/2 months old.) Yes, that is way too long and I can only hope that they still aren't tall enough to have done the deed. Moose, who lost her lamb in mid March would be the shortest ewe whom they may have been able to reach. The boys just aren't that big, maybe around 50 pounds and not that tall.
But they sure aren't happy being separated from the rest of the flock.
Soon the boys, soon to be joined by rams 0004 and 0006, will be moved to the pasture across the stream to spend the summer grazing before going to visit Iceland in the fall.
