It’s too hot for little lambies to run around and play. Neo still isn’t feeling up to much running around anyway. Both of them spent a lot of time today laying in a patch of dirt under the tree fast sleep.
“Crunchies?” (Well, maybe not fast asleep.)
No, Neo. No crunchies until bedtime. I’m just taking pictures.
“Okay. I’m going to go back to sleep, then.”
Princess had a hard time getting everyone to stay out in the field today. They kept running back to the shady Clubhouse, with her chasing behind them yelling “Come back Right Now; I didn’t give you permission to leave!” Finally she gave up and she and Nova grazed by themselves.
“Umm, Mama? We walked all the way out here, but nobody’s following. Should we go back?”
“Nonsense! I’m not giving up my grazing time just because they’re too lazy to deal with a bit of sun.”
Princess has always been more heat tolerant than the others, and Nova seems to be as well. I assume it’s because they have full horns, and horns radiate heat. I’m not sure how much benefit Lady gets from her scurs, since they’re hollow and don’t have a lot of blood flowing through them.
