Fully Integrated

Today ended up nicer than they'd predicted and a perfect day to put the boys back into the main flock.  I wasn't really expecting any big trouble.  Burrnie'd already made an accidental quick foray into the herd the first day or so he was here.  He'd apparently not made a very good impression on the girls though because as soon as they saw him coming this morning, they all took a turn either punching him or seeing how fast he could run.  

This was probably the best thing that could have happened, as by the time they settled down, Burrnie was too tired to harass anyone and in fact, walked around like he didn't even see any girls ;-).  Daniel only had eyes for Blossom and Hershey was pretty sweet on Maisie.  Chocula just hoped there was going to be cookies involved.

I kept everyone locked out of the tight quarters of the barn for the first hour or so and then opened up the side field for them when I let them back into the barn.  Some fresh grass would be a good diversion if anyone still had any thoughts of causing any trouble.   They didn't and Hank was glad to have all his sheep back together.

The boys were glad to be back in with their favorite fun uncle, Willard.

When everyone headed to the barn for an afternoon nap, Burrnie decided he'd go back into his familiar sleeping spot.

But in short order he came peeking into the big stall.  "I'm not too sure about this."

"But they've got chickens over here so it must be okay."

"Now if that lady would stop taking pictures..."

And then back out.  One big happy flock :-).

We love a big, happy flock! I keep telling Ian we need a BIG flock. He said we need a BIG field before that can happen. I'm on the hunt!

Your flock looks so happy and I'm glad Burrnie is eventually settling in. Hope you're having a really great day. Greetings. Jo
