Looks like a big-ass lamb, more like a mutton.

I would have called that animal a sheep.  I thought lambs were small.

Size has 'zip' to do with it. Age is the criteria used and lambs can be 100+pounds, depending on the breed and age at slaughter.

Lamb – an immature ovine (usually less than 14 months of age) that has not cut its first pair of permanent incisor teeth. 2. Yearling – an ovine (usually between 1 and 2 years of age) that has cut its first pair of permanent incisors but not the second pair.

By the way, I'd find a gate.  As to the jumper comment, some breeds are more prone to jump than others.

So they should have showed us a close up of the sheep's mouth?   Is it okay to look a gift lamb / sheep in the mouth?

My experience is primarily Suffolk.  Our fences were 6' tall, there were still occasions where you would walk outside and say, "How the hell did you get out."

 

I was happy when my older sister got done with 4H and over the sheep thing, it took me a minute to let my dad know I had no interest in continuing to mess with them.  I liked my pigs.

there is nothing safe about sex with me for any of the various parties involved.  Most times is just party.

Depends on the breed, as Southdowns are very different from Columbias and Suffolks, and other inbetween breeds.

A flake of hay or a partial bucket of feed works well when leading a sheep to a gate. I'll leave all of this pick them up and heave them to the younger folks.

work smarter, not harder, right?

Went for a ride with Ryan last night.  We stopped at a local park and leaned on our bikes, not touching anything.

A good friend and his wife rode by on their hybrids.  Ryan wanted to chase them down, so I told him to go ahead and I would meet him there!  I know where they live and knew they would still be in the driveway / garage putting away bikes.

He was about ready to sprint after them and three cars came by and he could not take off, so he just rode there at a normal pace with me.

My sheep are small. a mature ewe is about 75 lbs.  a ram may get to 100 lbs.  Newborn average between 4 and 10 lbs.
