My ram doesn’t stink….. jus’ saying LOL
😂😂
I know I know, you have an amazing ram to brag about while we all suffer through buck stank. It’s ok...you just enjoy not smelling like a skunk over there whilst we scrub our skin off😂😂. Seriously though, I’ve read about Ringo and you’ve got something great with him.

I have a chair in that pasture up against the round hay bale cow panel "hay ring". I sit in it after feeding to give Sentry and Sheba some hugs. Ringo always comes for his share and lays his head in my lap. He is one in a million.

What a handsome fella! Let us know how it goes and how you like having a buck.

I'm in a similar situation. I only have three does. They're still too young to breed, but I feel like I have to figure out what we're going to do soon-ish. Not sure I want to own a buck for our first breeding attempt; but, so far none of the local breeders I've contacted are willing to offer stud service, so we'll probably have to buy a buck(s).

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has goats and no truck. :) I'll never get all the hay out of my SUV. hah.

I was actually debating trading the goats for milk sheep but...we'll see how this goes, first. 😉😁
Rams can be awfully mean too. Some of them just want to break your legs. That's what makes Ringo so special. The Katahdin breed is generally calm.

I always treated my cars like trucks. Even though my husband had a truck, there were rainy days, so I used my car. I had a 2003 Ford Focus wagon that I treated terrible. It had rails on the roof that would hold 3 hay bales. LOL LOL Then I had a 2007 Dodge Caliber and it had LOTS of room in the back. It was a great little SUV. Now I still have my husband's truck, and I have a 2008 Buick Lucerne with leather seats, it's a nice car. It was my Mom's and I can't make myself abuse it, I treat it nice.

Even if you disease test your does?
I haven't asked around extensively since my does won't even be year old until March/April, but so far my top choices have said no even with testing. I'd like to find a breeder that focuses on dairy production, but I may have to look for less established breeders or just buy a buck like the OP did.
