Robin and Constance were butting heads today. I used to think this is something just male sheep did. But all the sheep do it. Males butt heads with males, females butt heads with females, and females and males butt heads with each other.
Everything I’ve read says that head-butting is about dominance. And that makes sense to me be it male or female. Although sometimes I see the sheep butt heads and they don’t seem very serious about it. Like it’s just something they do.
That said, I can imagine that something is going on between Robin and Constnace. That Robin as a young wether is trying to find his place in the flock. Constance has always been a dominant ewe, so I’m not surprised that there might be some tension between them.
