Sheep Smarts ~ Cattle Grid No Object

P1080252

This sheep popped over the cattle grid so fast, I didn’t actually see it in action (one second it was on the far side, the next it was among the pink geraniums), but all its friends and relations in the next-door field saw. Goodness, what a commotion they kicked up. How did you do that! Wait for us! BAAAAAAA!

We’d just had lunch in the Apple Store Cafe on the Brockhampton Estate (see previous posts), and were about to head home. But at the last minute I thought I’d like a photo of the parkland with its grazing sheep, although the light wasn’t promising. And that’s when it happened – the great escape – ovine-style.

A couple of other sheep who had been paying attention to how it was done, soon followed their leader. The rest stood at the fence and whinged. BAAAAAAAA!

    1. One life’s biggest disappointments when I was a small child – getting the chance to cuddle a lamb. I was expecting cuddly, and instead it felt only rubbery. I was most put out 🙂

  1. I was thinking like Jude. I hate cattle grids, having once lived in a house with one at the end of the drive — guaranteed to wake the sleeping child in his buggy as we tried to cross it.
