Goofballs - A day in the Life...

Vern and Galloway are such a pair. When he gets bored, Galloway (the wether) will walk up behind his brother Vern (the ram), bop him in the butt and take off running.

Vern will chase him around the pasture, they will head for the "play station", Galloway will run off to the side and "BAM!" Vern will bash the ball - head on - in the play station - and then off they go again. They will do this time after time - until they get tired, and they'll go lie down next to each other, companionably chewing their cud.

"I like to tease Vern - it's the only way he ever gets any exercise!"

"I think The Shepherd feeds him too much - he is getting kind of porky".

"Watch who you're calling 'Porky' there buddy - I can whup your butt any time"

"Besides that, I'm not plump, I'm fluffy and this is my perfect Zen pose"

I didn't even know about these two! What a fun story; I can easily watch the video in my mind. Thanks for sharing!

What a cute story. I'm glad that Vern and Galloway are good buds. Pretty ram that fellow is!

Leigh said...

Tina that is so funny. Even the pic of Galloway spells mischief!

Galloway look like a mischeivious one! Look at that face! MOL! And Vern is a great sport for "tolerating" it! They are too adorable!

Sharon said...

Ooh, nice horns. Yeah, I'd respect 'em too.

Tina T-P said...

Well, I've got to say, Galloway gets his due -

Yes, Vern's horns - The Shepherd says (and I concur) that Vern has the nicest horns of any ram we've ever had born here - and he has very nice fleece too - :-) T.

I love it! I also love the green grass pasture you have. We're already down to dirt. (We've got to convince the ole Top Kick to retire sooner than later...I gotta get outta this place!)
What a couple of hams. I love hearing about the boys. Now to get a photo of the Break Away & Bash maneuver. :)
