Meet Valentino. He's the ram born to Button's travel mate. The travel-mate herself, Valentine, died suddenly about a month ago. We have several possible culprits, but nothing for sure. But Valentino was sad as the only sheep left in a pasture of goats, his owners were nervous of losing him too and so we were happy to bring him to our place to "take care of" our ladies' reproductive needs. So far he's seen no "action", but given that we aren't sure if they'll actually go into heat before fall we aren't that suprised. But at any rate, he's very happy and we're happy to have him. He tethers well and seems to be a calming factor for Button who remains our most skiddish sheep by far.
