In terms of head butting, do you also have peacemakers? I have a few that
will step in between the two head butting (wethers and ewes) and get them
to stop - at least they used to. I'll have to see if they are still doing
that when I get them home. The vet seems to have encouraged head butting
- I was amazed to see some of the littler rams with horns nearly 2" in
diameter broken off - that indicated to me a very hard hit or a poor diet,
which could also have been the case.
Anyhoo, I will be enjoying watching and participating in their social
behaviors more in a few days. They are fun to watch.
