We’re excited to have a new Whitefaced Woodland ram at Mudchute. He joins us from Derby and can be easily spotted among the flock by his gorgeous spiraling set of horn. Both male and female sheep of the breed are horned, but the ram’s impressive horns definitely stand out. Like all our tupping rams, he’s also wearing a raddle, a chalk pad on a harness, which gives us an idea of which ewes he has serviced. This helps us get a better idea of which ewes are likely to be in lamb and if/when we might expect lambs. A warm welcome to the new boy and best of luck. We hope to have a rather busy spring!
