A Sheep With A Lot To Say

Now that it's not a million degrees by 8:00 in the morning, the sheep don't hurry in from the field as quickly as they did in say, October.  Buddy is one of the "old guys" who gets fed a little grain in the morning.  The breakfast club watches for me, races back in for "cereal" and then usually just hang out  in the barn waiting for the rest to come in.

I'm not sure if Buddy wants to go back out and graze some more or if he has a friend out there he'd like to have come back to the barn with him or if he's just looking for some encouragement to make the trek back out.

Regardless, he'll stand at the back of the barn and holler.  And wait for a response.  And holler. And wait for a response.  And holler...  Buddy has a big mouth.  I had the camera handy the other morning and decided I'd "record" this morning ritual.  I ended up with a bunch of pictures that all look exactly the same.

You can scroll back and forth between these two shots and get a real feel for it ;-).

What I should have done was actually record it with the video function.

Hey, it was early.


  1. Old sheep and old dogs- they are just.... special :0)

  2. OMW! I never knew a sheep could holler for attention (and food) Every morning at 4 my one cat, Shadow, gets onto my bedside cabinet and hollers - he's the cat [town] caller for Mum to bring breakfast. The other three cats sit in a line behind him on the floor.

  3. Love that he announces his needs! lol

  4. The back and forth was a animation cards! I can hear him "Loudly"!

  5. BAAAAAAA! I could just hear it loud and clear


  6. Love it! Rather like Arthur on "King of Queens". Hey, you 're entitled to baaaaah (I mean, "BAAAH!") when you're old. He probably tells the younger sheep, "When I was your age, I had to walk two miles through the snow every day for food. And it was all uphill!"

  7. I love all your sheep's personalities!

  8. I think he has a friend that he's calling to come have breakfast with him ~ and he's not gonna take a chance on someone sneaking a bite of his cereal if he goes lookin' for them...
    Whatever he's thinking and sayin' ~ darn cute photos! ♡Buddy♡

  9. Sweet old Buddy. Those other sheep just don't appreciate him! Good thing thecrazysheeplady is there to give him cereal and scritches.

  10. Who knows what he is thinking, perhaps he is just an announcer:)


I love to read your comments! Thank you for sharing :-).
