Stroking him and being firm but friendly with him will make him easier to handle . 

Stroke him anywhere you like but not the top of his head!

Maybe its stimulates competetive hormones but rubbing and tickling a ram's head  can too easily  lead to a shoving match.  Before long the ram sees you as a rival rather than benefactor  .....

Guess I'm a bit late since you've bought one now.

Always difficult to answer without knowing your system, when and where your lambing& type of ewes. We've just started ped texel flock alongside our commercials (which also have tex tups) What you don't want is big shoulders tup over young or narrow pelvis ewes.
