I'm new to this forum but was hoping to get some advice. I banded/castrated my BFL ram lamb at 2 weeks old, I thought that I had felt both testicles in the sack but realized about 10 hours later that I was wrong and they hadn't descended yet. ( pretty new to sheep and haven't figured it all out yet) I cut the band off and was not able to push them down so decided to wait until he was a little older. However, the band must have been on long enough to cut off circulation because his sack is shrinking and hard. Is there any advice on what I should do now? I do NOT want him as a ram lamb or one with ram characteristics, if I cannot make him a full wether he will have to be butchered which would be a shame cause he has a lovely fleece. Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!
