That lamb needs a middle name. Even stretching “Will” out to “William” doesn’t sound impressive enough yelled across the pasture. I’m thinking “Houdini”. William Houdini Scarlet has a nice ring to it.
It’s not enough for him that he still spends most of his time crying about being weaned (doubly silly since he’s still nursing through the fence). In his latest attempt to drive me insane, Will has started escaping from the Clubhouse every night. Every. Single. Night. And then wailing about it the next morning because he can’t get back in.
“Uh oh, here she comes, Will! Hide!”
Great plan, Will. If anybody out there wants a handsome Soay ram lamb with a spotted face and a flair for melodrama, I know where they might be able to get one. Maybe.
The Duke Door Bash Prevention System Mark II (otherwise known as that chain on the door), while very effective against grown rams, apparently can’t keep itty-bitty ram lambs from squeezing out. I guess it’s time to get to work on a Will Scarlet Door Escape Prevention System.
Neo is sad that he’s already eaten all the leaves he can reach. He still takes a stroll around the trees on his hind legs every morning, just in case he missed some.
And of course no matter how frustrated one may be with certain troublesome ram lambs, or how eager one may be to get back to the house for her morning cup of tea, if a puppy is waiting on the back porch wearing that expression, one simply must stop and play frisbee.
