Hello Farm Friends,
In continuing my theme of "what the animals do when the farmers are away"…here we go! This week when I returned home from the market it was the sheep and milk cow that had misbehaved. Immediately upon getting out of the car I heard a baby lamb in distress. Since the dogs were not barking, I deduced that the baby lamb was simply misplaced instead of in danger. What I found upon entering the barn was a lamb in a very far away pen (I have NO idea how she got there), a distraught mother ewe, a milk cow that had gotten into the forbidden stall and several other sheep that had followed her. It wasn't too hard to right the cow and sheep, but the little lamb and I had quite the tussle with me running around the wagon parked in her pen and her doing her best to avoid me. Finally, I decided I would not be able to catch her so I opened a gate we had tied shut…big gaping hole in the side of the barn and the little girl still could not find her way out. UHHHH, finally she stopped to tinkle and I grabbed her up and helped her and her mom to reunite. What is so much different from last week? Well, this week there were no revelations. I didn't sense God was trying to tell me anything through this ordeal…this time it was simply a case of "Stupid Animal Tricks" for sure!!! Have an awesome week…absolutely anything is possible you know!
God Bless You all!
