Guess who was in the yard again today? Yup. I suppose any lamb that was stubborn enough to survive all the setbacks she did as a baby would have to grow into a stubborn adolescent.
“Oh, hi Mom! I came back! This yard grass sure is tastier than field grass!”
“Well, that’s enough tasty yard grass, I’m going back to the house now.”
‘Hmm, doorknob might be a problem… I know, Watcher knows how to open doorknobs! I’ll get him to do it!”
If those two ever team up, heaven help the world.
Since Watcher doesn’t show any sign of aggression towards her, I wouldn’t actually mind Mira being in the yard so much, were it not for the fact that Soays are extremely clever copycats, and what one does they all end up doing.
“Why does SHE get to be out there? It’s not fair, ShepherdPerson! WE want that tasty yard grass, too!”
I really, really don’t want to end up with a yard full of sheep. If nothing else it might give Watcher a heart attack.
“But one sheep is all right, right Mom? I don’t take up much room!”
“Not cool, Mom. Seriously not cool.”
My little girl is growing up so fast. She’s already mastered the Teenage Girl Glare. I have a feeling this is going to be an epic battle of wills.
