Dilemma Cut Down

As noted in a recent post, we had to cut the horns of Dilemma, our breeding ram. Just to give a quick update: his bandages are off, and he's doing very well. And fortunately still getting the respect of the rest of the flock.

I just hope those horns weren't too distracting for him last fall. We've only had five ewes deliver, and on shearing day it wasn't even clear that the other four had been bred. Granted, one of those four is very old. And one is a yearling. But there's no reason the other two shouldn't be obviously pregnant.

So...we'll see.
