I have Katahdins , but Id like to go Dorper. I keep them to keep the grass down on our hilly property so I never registered them. I have the lambs butchered and give away the meat . Hardly anyone has ever eaten lamb . I need a new ram, Makes me sad. The one I have is a sweetheart, six years old and never a problem. Im 70 and I couldnt handle a mean ram.

Wasn't sure if I was breaking any rules or not. It was just from one site and I cut and pasted. No trouble.
