Donkey, the sheep, is beginning to scare me. He just stands there at the fence, staring in his sheepish way. I will be working away in the garden, and can't help but glance over, and there he is, watching me. When I go into the pen to feed everyone, he paces me. No longer does he run and leap over invisible obstacles. No, now he creeps closer, you can see the plotting and scheming in his eyes. My father-in-law says, "don't show your fear!"
We still have a banny rooster and his very small consort in the house. I am little timid about placing them outside, even though they are long over due. Last night after dinner, my 5 year old left some fish on his plate and neglected to clean up. When I reminded him, the rooster snagged the piece of fish and ran. It reminded me of the kittens and the way they greedily eat. The rooster seems happy to follow me through the house, the consort which is 5x smaller them him, enjoys chirping as loud as she can when he leaves her sight. It gets rather loud in the smaller rooms.
The geese are not as passive as Donkey. My 9 year old can attest to that. We were out working in the barn and the standard rooster has a death wish, so my oldest son must literally watch my back when we are out there. As I was cleaning and my son was standing guard, the gander approached and bit and beat on my son's leg. I heard the screaming and turned. The gander had already let go and my son was in tears. "I told you not to turn your back on them." He now boasts some very large bruises.
We now have a puppy, a pit bull/Husky mix. Otherwise a Pit Bull with blue eyes. There is no mistake in what she is. She is only slightly squarer than are English Pit is, here is hoping the other neighbors don't notice and freak out. Her name is Buttercup, and she is bent on killing all the children with her licks. She finds them in the middle of the night, jumping up on the bed, her little tail beating them in the sides or back, licking and jumping until one of the boys vocally complains and pushes her off the bed. That doesn't persuade her to stop, she just hunts down the next victim. I need to replace the batteries in my camera, will get you pictures soon.
Who is plotting against you?
