Max has definitely made his way to the Naughty list!
We have him hid a couple of years and the farm we bought him from said he was a "big baby". Well I have a different opinion of Max, I think he is a "big bully"
Yesterday was no exception. I was out trying to get ewes and lambs behind the barn due to the cold rain we were getting, I wanted them to have some protection overnight. Everyone came in including Max. There were three ewes that had not come in so I left the gate open and walked out to the pasture to see if I could coerce them in.
Next thing I know I am face down on the ground....I knew instantly that Max followed me back out. No one else around here plows into your backside like that!
I quickly got up and there he was waiting for another round! I of course started yelling and smacking him trying to deter him. I did find a stick and after a few seconds of me ranting and raving he must have decided there was easier prey to be found and walked away...looking back to make sure I wasn't following him!
If anyone had been watching I am sure they would have thought the scene hysterical. Me-wet and muddy chasing a 200 plus pound Ram around with a stick yelling "You want a piece of me??"
I survived- just a bruised bottom and ego....
I am not sure what to do with this guy. I know Rams can be dangerous, some have to even be hooded and kept in confinement all the time. I always said I would not have a Ram like that around here.
We have had three Rams and all of them had their "moments" I have been head butted by all of them on a couple occasions but this guy is the worse!
