Rameses, a 7-year-old horned Dorset ram who roams the sidelines of Kenan Stadium during football games, has become one of Carolina’s most famous and beloved Tar Heels.

Away from the football field and public life, the same family has been caring for UNC-Chapel Hill’s mascots since the first Rameses walked campus in 1924.

In this episode, three members of that family share their story and explain why they love caring for everyone’s favorite Tar Heel.

Join us every Wednesday for the University’s podcast as we talk with Carolina’s newsmakers and experts. Each episode, students, faculty, staff and alumni will discuss what’s going on in classrooms, labs and around campus, and how it pertains to the local, national and international headlines.
