I think it really came from her being with them since 2 mo. of age and from Shine being the first to lamb, thus teaching Pinky Pie the proper manners around lambs. Blue didn't have those good moments early on in his life, so still wants to get in there way too close. Pinky lays back and watches from a respectful distance all the while. Could be a girl thing vs a boy thing too, maybe? Boys more excited by the pregnancy hormones and girls not so much?It’s remarkable that Pinkie is so serious and not wanting to play. If Sheba could get to newborns, she would lick them and mom would reject that dog slobbered freaky THING!
He skipped out last night, jumped fence and was last spotted moving past my neighbor's turkey blind, heading into thousands of acres of uninhabited land owned by a pulp and paper company. As the movie says, "There they be monsters." so it's unlikely we'll recover him unless it's God's will that we do. The coyote pack, bobcats or the black bear can make short work of him out there.Amazing how animals don’t cooperate with us....... ram rodeo!
No worries, Bay....God brought him back to us! A mean ol' man from down the road found him in his field fighting with his scrubby little woolly head ram and penned him up for us~his ram comes up to this one's belly. Funny that God would use THAT particular man to recover our ram for us, as he is as evil as they come....I'm very surprised he didn't just shoot him and drag him to the back of his land, honestly. It's a God thing, I tell ya!That sucks. Maybe for new arrivals you should pen them up to acclimate them to you and their new surroundings. Maybe he wasn’t the greatest, but you paid money for him and your money will likely feed coyotes. Stupid durned sheep.
I’m really sorry for you, El Stupido the ram and the whole situation.
