After reading the "Danger from Rams" post I have decided to keep my Barbado ram in a seperate pasture. The pasture has entrance to 1/2 of my barn where I feed and there is access for all the ewes to the other 1/2 of the barn. I have a 5 ft welded wire fence seperating the 2 pastures. This way if my wife has to feed when I am out of town she can do so without coming in contact with the ram. He is not mean by any means but he does like to play a little rough (my fault for playing rough with him) and I don't want him to accidentaly hurt her. Also I want to turn in all the ewe lambs back in with the flock that I am keeping. And I have a ewe lamb that is smaller than all the rest that I want to leave on her momma and let the ewe wean her. When I want to breed a ewe I will turn her in with the ram. My question is..............will the ram get lonely and possibly destructive? Do I need to put another sheep in with him? How many of you keep your rams by themselves?
