An intriguing entry by A Unique Title For Me
Thank you so much for taking part in #writephoto – NEWBORN
This whole flock of sheep was mated by a single ram who I named Ram-alama-ding-dong. This guy established his dominance over the flock through his physical abilities. I only keep two other rams which are still too young to challenge him, but next year I expect there to be some competition between Ram-alama-ding-dong and Rambo and Ram-Rod. Rams will charge at each other which gets them into physical shape for the breeding season. They will ram into each other at speeds up to 20 mph in order to establish dominance. These sparring matches can last all day but rams will only spar with animals of equal size. They only seem to engage in the headbutting contests when they sense that ewes are around. The winner gets all the ewes and will ultimately mate with all of the females, because he has established himself as the leader of the herd.
