Let's Play!

It's a hazy, lazy day in the pasture today.  The lambs are getting big enough to try to make their own fun.  C'mon, Nana Ruth, play with us...





They'll be on top of her before the morning's out.  In the meantime, in the south pasture, I turned Noah out, into the big pasture with the rest of the herd.  Time to get acquainted...


Noah is a good sized boy, and intact.  This levels the playing field quite a bit--it will be interesting to see what kinds of alliances form in the group.  Pasture politics is fascinating.




From my perspective, the meeting was blissfully uneventful.  After some sniffing and half-hearted ritual spitting, the crowd broke up, and went looking for some snacks.


That's what we like... peace in the pasture.

    inquiring minds want to know, did the lambs actually climb on Ruth by the end of the day?
