It doesn't take much for a ram to get bored.

So, now we come to the part of farming that I hate. When The Shepherd takes somebody to The Auction. :-( - It leaves me unsettled and with a longing for the way things were, for days - sometimes weeks afterwards.
Even the excitement of the new lambs doesn't dull the ache - Oh, I know, they've had good lives and were well treated here, and maybe, just maybe, someone will buy them to live on another farm, instead of going to "freezer camp" (ad my friend calls it)
But, that's life on a farm - (and that's why all my chickens all died of old age, rather than for the stew pot...)
And like Dorothy said to the scarecrow in the Wiz - They've got to ease on down the road...
