Marlfield Moss makes new life in Nottinghamshire

Our 2018 Boreray ram lamb, Marlfield Moss, has headed off to pastures new, adding new blood to a breeding group of Borerays in Nottinghamshire.

Marlfield Moss, our handsome little Boreray ram lamb from our 2018 lambing season has gone to pastures new to make a new home in Nottinghamshire, where he will join 15 Boreray ewes, injecting new blood into the flock there.

Marlfield Moss is the son of Marlfield Boris (also born at LambWatch HQ in 2016) and Fiona of Babylun. We are sure he will grow to develop magnificent horns just like his dad and appears to have the quiet and well-mannered temperament of both his mum and dad. These are just two of the reasons why we kept him "entire". Although he is only 6 months old, we are confident he will go on to produce some excellent offspring next year with his new girlfriends.

We wish Moss the best of luck in his new life. Here is a picture of him taken back in May and also a photo of him with his mum, Fiona, sitting lazily under the sycamore tree you see in the LambWatch field during a hot summer afternoon....

What a cutie! I'm glad he's mild-mannered and gentle, and I hope all the girls he meets are the same. Although it's hard to part with your own little 'stars', there will be more in the spring. Good luck to Moss.

Good luck to Marlfield Moss in Nottinghamshire. A handsome ram and I love the two photos especially the one with his mum, Fiona.

I thought as was told to me that Fiona's boy would stay at Marlfield. Moss I love you as I love your mum and I hope you are happy in Northamptonshire.

Hi Fi, it was never intended for Moss to stay at LambWatch HQ. He would have no breeding purpose as he is related to all our ewes and would become a burden and nuisance in the Autumn as he tries to find ewes. We may have said something like "keep him entire", meaning we intended to keep him in one piece as a breeding animal destined for a new home (most male lambs are castrated and become wethers). Unfortunately you can't keep them all, and this way, Moss has gone to a new home where he will live a full and happy life doing things he was born to do. It doesn't get any better than that if you're a male lamb

Ok Thanks Dan for explaining, I probably misunderstood.
