With breeding season concluded, it is time to separate the breeding groups and move the rams into a pasture. We decided to try advice that we found on the 'Lavender Fleece' website and move the rams into a very small area for 24 hours. Here are the boys after we finally maneuvered them into a 4X4 area. We thought we would have problems with Hercules, but Liam was the bully of the group. By the next day they were pretty settled, and we didn't have any trouble moving them into their new pasture. However, once there, Liam decided he had to re-establish his dominance and bullied the others for the next couple days.

Here are some of the girls in their new pasture, settling in for the long winter wait for spring lambs!
