    Re: sheep or goats??

    looks like we'll be picking up 2 rams from this spring (soay).... Is castration a big deal? Vet will be doing it, but do I need to make special arrangements before/after?
    Thanks.....

    They'll have the run of the area with good fence... Friends have Scottish Blackface and another breed..... Suicidal little bastards... Are the Soays any better?
