So, on my home tonight I was driving along Pine Grove/Volcano Road listening to my music when I noticed a group of little dobermans(?) harassing my favorite sheep!!
"WHAT! NO WAY!!!" I yelled.
I quickly pulled over and drove back to the pasture, expecting to see dead sheep, or at least bloody ones.
I was going to save sheep lives.
I immediately realized that I was looking at a large new batch of lambs playing in the grass. There were several little black and tan ones (the min-pins) and they were all RUNNING like crazy, yelling all the way. "AWWWW!!" I said with a ...sheepish grin....and grabbed my camera.
SEEEE the little black and tan butts?
This ewe seemed to be very interested in what I was doing. She came closer and closer to the fence where I was standing clicking away with my camera...and stamped her little hooves.
OoooooOOOooo! I felt SO threatened!
I laughed so hard...she was clearly baffled.
"Look YOU," she seemed to say..."don't get any closer to my lamb!"
When I could stop laughing, I thought about her body language. She was stiff legged and stared right into my eyes. Her ears were down, clearly annoyed.
Definitely not a sheep to mess with!
But just look at her dark brown wool and her lovely golden eyes.
Sooo, after you have had a good run with your lamb pals, you need some warm sheep's milk....
...then a bit of a nap.
...all is well at Red Barn farm....
