What Happens In Vegas...

Graham Lamb is nothing if not confident. Last night, as I was hanging out watching the sheep eat, I caught him taking some shots at Ford. You know Ford...with the big horns. Graham has no horns. But apparently a thick skull.

This morning his face was covered in what appears to be green paint. There is nothing on our farm with green paint.



Um, Graham Lamb?



Wait, I don't want to know.



But here's what happened in the two minutes it took to go to the house and get the camera. I think Woolliam standing on the hay stack is a particularly nice touch.



And also the look of terror in Billy Belly's eye upon finding himself cornered someplace he knows he shouldn't be, behind several really big bodies that have no clue how to put a "look of terror" on their faces and could not care less that they are someplace "they shouldn't be".

You can give a Jacob an "ahem!" and they'll scoot out of wherever they are, no matter how good the food... You pretty much have to hit a Cotswold (or Boudreaux) with a car.

A car headed to Vegas perhaps?

so how did Graham get the green on his face?

The poor, starving sheep.... ;-)

Maybe it's bruises from taking on Ford? ;-)

I have a few jacobs that I will send your way :) They could care less if they are found on the hay pile. The rest have the 'terror' look on their faces!

Was Graham pushing on the green gate? Our jacob rams come home from the shows with green horns due to pushing on the panels.

Reminds me of our goat Val after we used the green crayon on his breeding harness. Ah, they are rascals, but such fun!

LOL! too funny, could the green be from the green alfala they seem to be sticking their muzzles in??

I KNOW!!!The green comes from the same source as crop circles!!!

I just caught up with your photos! They are great. The sheep have such character! And your dog is gorgeous!

I don't think he has any way to get so close to the road, but isn't the Equinox Farm sign green?

He's changing his spots. Any greeen grass around:)

Oh if we could only understand baa-lish ( sheep language) we would know the true story behind the color splash on Grahams face. At least he didn't get hurt in the process.
Love Wooliam on the hay bale. Do you think he put the rest up to the mischief, or was he playing an inside game of King of the Mountain? Gotta love those sheep antics. Thanks for a good laugh.

I was thinking farm sign, too. That Graham Lamb! The other day Millicent got into the bag of charcoal briquettes and distributed them all over the lawn. I can't even give her a lump of coal for Christmas because she would actually have fun with it! Plus she was the only dog to get the gold star for best behavior in 2009--very scary!

Hummmm could the maker of the crop circles tried to get Gramham?
