Just before Christmas, we welcomed back the handsome Whitefaced Woodland ram, Biddlesden Warrant, who previously visited some our ewes last January. Warrant is back at Mudchute to spend time with some of our Whitefaced Ewes.
You’ll notice he is wearing a raddle, a harness that holds a crayon. By changing the colour of the marker regularly, we can monitor if and when he mounts a ewe. This will give as indication of when the ewes may conceive. We’ve only just introduced the ram and ewes, but we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for Whitefaced lambs in 5-6 months!
