That sounds delicious! Im not a huge fan of lamb, but my husband is. I will have to tell him about that! I love chicken fried steak though so maybe I would like thatI had a mean ram but he was scared of plastic grocery bags. I flapped it at him and chased him. We declared an uneasy truce. He still popped me when he got the chance. He became ramburger and was quite tasty. LOL So use your ram until it is time to change and get another, then enjoy him for supper. If your family likes round steak, chicken fried, have the leg of lamb sliced into steaks and tenderized. That’s my new chicken fried steak!
I think once the testosterone starts flooding, there's a pretty good chance they turn into bungholes. Many will use different tactics - the ones that seem to be gentlemen may be just evaluating their chances. The ones who come straight at you right away, you think are jerks, but some sit back and "figger" on a good tactic - usually how to get in a sucker-punch when you least expect it. My current ram is this way. Thought I was blessed with a gentleman ram - but he was really just watching and planning like a good chess player! He finally decided a sucker-punch was the best move, and will sneak around the shed or around a bunch of trees quiet as a cat, and hit me from behind. So I belled him. That worked for awhile. Then he decided to act all placid, trun suddenly and charge me - so the bell wouldn't sound long enough for me to take evasive measures. So I ended up with a Ram Shield from Premier. Works like a charm!Ram behavior, is it genetic or do you think the way that you raised them dictates their behavior ( good or bad) or maybe both?
Even if your ram comes from friendly blood lines , does that mean he has a higher chance of behaving like a gentleman? Is there hope
for a ram who comes from lines where personality was not top priority? Thoughts?
Definitely a mix of nature and nurture.
I believe both but, handling seals the deal, IMO.Sadly we played and loved on ours way to much, and now he is becoming a bit aggressive
