The ongoing saga of Walter, the snot nosed ram lamb: When I got him, it was January. I was told the papers would be here soon. I patiently waited, and waited. About three months into my ownership I emailed the previous owner, and when I didn't get a response, I posted on an icelandic list asking how long it generally took to get papers back? Immediately I got an email from the previous owner telling me she was sorry; giving me a story about the breeder not knowing which ram had bred the ewe, but that they'd finally gotten that all straightened out. A few more weeks and still no papers. I emailed the breeder, who told me she'd signed off on the papers, and that this owner had known who the sire was, it wasn't something that they'd just determined. Shortly afterwards, I received the registration papers. I then posted about his attitude on the list (as I'd done here,) not that I was upset with the breeder, just how best to deal with him. Someone suggested that I ask the breeder to take him back; I told them that she was dispersing her flock and I was sure she didn't want him. Again she wrote to me, and was a bit defensive. I assured her that aside from the attitude, I didn't have any real issues. I pointed out that I'd not given her name, not ever, so that no one knew exactly which sheep I'd been waiting on papers for or whom I'd purchased an aggressive ram from. She told me that she needed a ram that wasn't so closely related to her remaining ewes, and offered to trade him for a different ram. I told her I wasn't really wanting another ram, but thank you. She wrote again saying she'd trade me for a triplet ewe lamb if I wanted. This was something I was more willing to do, and told her so. She wrote back and said it would be mid-June before the ewe was ready to wean. I told her that would be fine, and we could swap then. Tonight I just read where she's listed the ewe lamb for sale! :grump: Am I surprised? No, I suppose I shouldn't be. I'm a little blown away that she'd advertise her where she knows I post so often. I would have expected her to sell the lamb privately, but not on the icelandic list where she knows I frequent. But now here's my dilema: Do I post on the list that she'd promised that lamb to me in trade for the ram? The good side of me says no...but part of me rationalizes that I ought to at least warn the others of what they're getting themselves into... I really am beginning to feel like I need to call her out. Tell me, what would you do?
