Who Does This Look Like?



Just every now and then and only from certain angles, but when he does, it's really startling. Of course Graham doesn't act like Miss Ewenice ;-).

So from the department of "laugh or cry", here's the latest chapter in Graham's book of tales. Yesterday I pulled my CRV into the barn lot so Dr. Barron, Louanne and I could put Blizzard in the back to take him to UK. Immediately Graham started trying to open the driver's side door. He gave it several good tries, to no avail. He stepped back, surveyed the situation and WENT AROUND AND TRIED THE PASSENGER SIDE DOOR!

What sort of sheep thinks like that?!?

Just adding to the reasons why I'm afraid to go to the barn half the time ;-).

Everyone seems okay today. We are still formulating our plan(s) and I so appreciate everyone's input and kind words. Sounds like so many of us have had a fairly crappy summer :-/.

I've had several questions about Sherman's necropsy and we learned nothing helpful other than he had a blockage due to bladder stones. Toxicology came back normal, no red flags. Should have preliminary results back on Blizzard tomorrow.

Continued good thoughts being sent to you. Happy to see you post today and give us a sheep story and picture. Life goes on, and on.

Yeah, blogging sort of like life. Just keep trying to show up and plug onward.

Wow! The first shot DID make me clean my glasses!
As for Graham, maybe he smelled some 'nilla wafers, or he is studying to be a mechanical engineer, or maybe he was trying to be a gentleman and open a door for a lady.....NAH! on the last one :-)
I wondered how a necropsy was done, now I sadly know.

Now Sara, I think you're just not giving poor Graham enough credit here. I'm sure he just decided that you shouldn't have had to go on your sad errand all by yourself. He just stepped up to volunteer to keep you company.
Now why he initially thought he should do the driving, I have no clue. But I'm sure he thought he'd do a good job. Anyway, I think Graham deserves a few extra cookies ;-).

Hmmmmm. Keep us updated. And Graham thought there is always room for a comedy relief.

Terry said...

Wow. Graham was motivated.
I hope you get some helpful answers. Hang in there.

Tombstone Livestock said...

Graham was just trying to help, give him a hug and Blossom too. Hope you get some answers from Necropsy.

Marcy said...

Thinking of you and your flock. Glad to see there are still some sweet moments in your day.

I am anxious to hear what your vet has to say. We've coped with drought here in Upstate SC & have lost a handful of this season's lambs as well as one ewe. They seemed to be doing well but then suddenly declined with no real "symptoms". We have had sheep for 14 years now & this has been the most mystifying season.

My heart breaks for you & your precious creatures. I pray your vet might have some idea that will help you & perhaps others of us as well.

Susan said...

Anyone who thinks that sheep are stupid, has not lived with them. The wheels turn...

I do hope that you can put your finger on the problem so that it's not repeated. The losses are hard.

Instant recognition on the photo! I thought it WAS Miss Ewenice, and you were posting a remembrance.

That Graham! I wonder if you'll ever be able to figure out what makes him tick?

Shirley said...

I agree that Graham should get extra 'nilla wafers. Because he makes you smile.

Benita said...

Graham's great to read about, but I'm glad he's at your farm and not my place. ;)

I am so sorry to read about Blizzard. Loosing animal friends is no easier than losing human ones.

Thinking of You and Yours. Peace be with You...

I am so very sorry for your losses, Sara. That's the part of this that sucks. And yet, I know that you, like me, would gladly still have room in the broken heart for others to shove and push and baa their way inside.
May all the anguish and hurt be replaced with fond memories in time.
Sheepy hugs from your friends here in the SW...

I am so sorry ..I hope it is just old age and not something to do with the drought..Blizzard was a good sitter for Blossom..and I bet Mia will miss him too:(
