    Hill Ram on Lowland sheep

    Has anyone ever used a hill ram on lowland sheep such as Texel cross ewes ? Would the horns on ram lambs rupture the texel ewes during lambing ? Could this cross work ?

    The cross is usually done the other way round to improve carcase conformation. The horns should not be a problem at birth as they are small to non existant at that stage.
