I know when I had Vista on an old computer one of my main gripes was the inability to back-up when I made a mistake. I make lots of mistakes. I guess my Cheviot sheep were programmed by Vista.
So…my grandson Joseph came for a visit to our farm and we were taking some over the hill veggies out to feed the “zombie pigs”–Joseph’s invention when we discovered that Rhiannon the Cheviot Ewe had climbed into the hay manger and was bawling to get out. Her new lamb, Sean, thought it was a great nursing opportunity and was also jumping up and down on her back using her like some sort of skateboard ramp. Joseph found this even more entertaining then the pigs.
I went into the pen and tried to tug on the ewe to get her to back up. I fell on my backside to peels of laughter from my grandson that thought I should “Do it again, grandma!” Then I tried pushing the ewe backwards to no avail and more laughter.
Now, if you grab a ewe by both back legs and pull with all of your might you may dislodge her from the manger and end up with a lap full ofungrateful lanolin infused wool monger.
Even better, when we went out for a 2nd round with the pigs we found her right back in the hay manger.
