There was some ewes and their lambs in these fields, who we put outside on Wednesday. Among them are Bubbles, Tilly, and their four lambs. Pip is still scared of sheep, so I hoped that by taking her for a walk in a field full of sheep that she might get over her fear and stop barking at them.
It was a lovely day.
But why does Pip always look so shy when I take her photo? It is odd. She has known the camera her whole life.
And whenever she’s being shy, we can’t see her lovely ears.
Pip seems to be very shy about her ears.
We walk on, and enter another field, where the ewes and lambs are all running away – except for one, who’s asleep. He’s getting left behind. I walk over, as Pip walks too, she spots him and he spots us. But he doesn’t get up – instead, he plays dead.
Eventually, Pip plucks up the courage to have a sniff… and then a lick… all while the lamb is just lying there, “dead”.
As we walked away, the lamb still lay there.
We went to a wall, and Pip jumped up onto it, so I took some photos.
Pip’s ears couldn’t make their mind up.
Or half up/half down?
I choose half up/half down – that’s my favourite.
All of these decisions are hard work.
What is it with Pip and drinking out of puddles…?
