We decided to get wethers instead of rams because we have two young kids and didn’t want to deal with aggressive animals. Granted, I’m sure the kids will make it to the ER or urgent care for a variety of other injuries and broken appendages just from playing without the help of a cranky, testosterone-filled animal. Plus, we’re not quite ready for little lambs yet.
When I told my dad that two of the sheep we were getting were going to have their nuts chopped before we got them, he joked, “I hope they don’t hold that against you.”
To which I replied, “They don’t have the balls.”
