    I really don't think "Oh crapz!" is such a nice name for such a good looking fellow. Just saying. I would not want to be the one in the yard yelling that name. :)

    Michaelis is so sweet!
    Can't lead, had to carry him, but once free, so mellow & happy to be near by.

    Decided to introduce Mitchealis to the rams. He was so sad & lonely.

    Jonathan Lippert, my hauler, carried him right into the yard. He started grazing immediately, super mellow & friendly.

    Okay, if Maciej doesn't sell, this will be the breeding groups.
    Tatiana will be in Kris's group.

    Considering offering microchipping for the lambs from next spring onward.

    Most want them as pets, so seems like a fair guess they may also want them chipped in case a tag is lost and need extra security verifying sheep identity and ownership.

    Chipping is pretty common here at least.

    What do you guys think?
