If you raise sheep life never gets dull!
We had to move the Tunis Ram to the barn across the road. He gets pretty aggressive with the other rams around breeding season, and he needs to be penned up.
Delaney feels sorry for him over there, and decided to put up a make shift pen to let him graze outside the barn. I was told about the plan after the fact, and after it was discovered that he was no longer in the pen and nowhere to be found!
After looking for about an hour with no luck, I started getting worried. The property has open fields and woods, which house coyotes, not the safest place for a lone sheep to be wondering around. After searching that area, I took the 4 wheeler over to the hay field, thinking maybe he seen the sheep and worked his way across the road and was pacing the fence line. I was just about to give up and head back to the barn, when out of the corner of my eye, I seen something running toward me. It was him! He looked happy to see me.
I figured I would drive home, and get help to bring him back. It ended up not being necessary, as he followed me all the way back to the barn. I wish I had my camera with me...
I doubt he learned his lesson, but I am glad he was found.
Sigh of relief! It could have ended badly-grateful that it didn't.
