It's so easy to tell when a mare is in season...a blind person can tell from the smell. But I'd never noticed a scent with my ewes. However, the three girls who visited in November have an owner who told me she could smell when one of them was in, as it was similar to a mare in season. Sure enough, while they were here, I got a whiff of that scent one day. Same woman just emailed saying she thinks one of the ewe lambs didn't take, as she could 'smell' her (although which one is difficult to say.) What do you think? Have you been able to smell when your girls are cycling?
