Sheep Groping, for Fun and Profit
Copping a Feel, Wooly-style
Actually, that last one would have worked, without drawing a lot of really weird internet searches. (Or searchers.)
Anyway, I finally got a chance to grope Onyx while she was eating this morning. (She is very single-minded about her eating, once she gets rolling.) There's definite swelling in the udder - 'making bag' is the technical term - so we could be looking for lamb anytime between now and two weeks from now. (It's not a scientific process. And every ewe is different.)
Still can't get close enough to Goldie, though. Every time I sidle up to her, she gives me a Look and shuffles around to face me, so I can't get up to no good.
But since Orion managed to nail Miss Onyx, I'm pretty sure he got Goldie, too...
So, all you folks who guessed April dates, get ready!
