Dang it Vern!

What happens when a ram gets bored. This is heavy duty hog panel wire - as you can see - it has a major boo-boo. . . What - Who, Me? Yeah, you, you big knucklehead. You see, Vern's "Play station" was broken (and who, might we ask, broke it??? - bashing through a 4" round post - busting it to smithereens) Well, he's all happy now - The Shepherd fixed it. This time using a 6 inch round post, set in cement - that ought to hold him for a while - Try as I might, I couldn't get a picture of him when he hit the ball, just the aftermath of it swinging... He kept running over to see what I was doing and if I was paying attention to him. Anyhow, this is how the game goes - His brother/buddy/wether Galloway runs up behind him, and smacks him in the backside - then takes off running with Vern in hot pursuit. Just before they get to the play station, Galloway veers off and BAM!, Vern bashes the ball into the middle pole. They will play this game for hours. Ok, so I'm exaggerating, maybe not for hours, but for 15 or 20 minutes at a time. Then they get all tuckered out and go sit under their ramada and chew some cud. Then they'll get up and do it all over again. Doesn't take much to entertain those boys...
