One place has a very nice looking ram (okay he's at least very photogenic because I haven't seen him up close and personal just yet) that I may be interested in. The issue I'm wondering about is the fact that he's in the barn. Now mine can get into the barn, but they also go outside whenever they want. Personally I think it's critical that they get outside and exercise no matter how cold the weather. They don't even show in interest in staying inside the barn during the day (unless they come in to eat hay), they only come in and bed down at night. I just need to check and see what some other sheep raisers think. If this ram would be one I'd want, I'd almost want the owner to keep it until the weather warms up a bit more as I'd hate for it to contract pneumonia or a cold here. Wouldn't it almost have to be kept inside a barn until the weather warms?
