I'm starting to look around for a ram for my girls. One place offered to rent a ram, but for the difference in price between outright buying and renting I'm further ahead to just buy. If i find I need to purchase a friend for the ram, maybe I'd be better off renting though. And if the ram does need a best buddy, what would suffice? Would it have to be another wethered sheep? I have read about rams that have attacked and killed buck goats, but would it attack a wether goat? The only reason I ask is because I've got two little buck kids who will be banded and if one of them would be a good companion and save me from buying a wethered sheep that'd be wonderful. If however he'd use the wether as a battering ram, well I wouldn't want that to happen. The place where I'd keep the ram would allow him to see the ewes at all times whether they are on the pasture or in the barnyard, so I also wonder if just seeing the others would make him happy?
