Would He?

While at first glance this appears to be a story about a sheep eating watermelon, I think the better story is actually the chickens.

I took a not super ripe watermelon out to the barn thinking everyone could share it.  The sheep were all asleep so I quietly set it down for the chickens.  Woody popped up immediately, came racing out and started gobbling it all up.  Would he share it?  No, he Woody not.  


"Boy, that sure looks good."


Note Gladys circling and circling while the others watch on in horror as the watermelon quickly disappears.  


"Can't you make him share with us, Gladys?"


"I just can't believe this!"


"Come on, Woody.  Just a little bit?"  

"No."


"The nerve!"


Here comes Andy.


Would Woody share?


"I guess I'll just eat this piece of wilted lettuce."


And Gladys is back...


...for one last attempt.


"Please?"  

"No."


Look at his gluttonous pink nose!  And the disgruntled hens.  I think I'd be a bit afraid to go to sleep tonight, Woody.  And I think I'll go get the girls their very own watermelon tomorrow.

Title's a cute play on words; I love the way you observe and translate for your friends.

Woody sure did a thorough job on that melon. We know his favorite food now.
Gladys and friends will definitely appreciate having their own melon in a sheep-free zone. Enjoy!

What a little piggy. He better sleep with one eye open around those chickens. They will enjoy their owing melon I’m sure!

I guess Woody never saw The Birds. Uh-oh.

I think two watermelon halves are in order for Gladys and her crew. With Woody watching on the other side of a fence.

What a cute story to wake up to this morning! I'd say Woody was lucky he got there first. Now you know of another treat you can give the wooly critters. Watermelon juice bars are tasty and refreshing for people too, especially in the hot summertime. Thanks for sharing . . .

I had to laugh! You nailed this whole thing perfectly. That hen look very mad in the last photo! And Woody looks satisfied.

Gladys is rightfully disgruntled! And boy did Woody CLEAN OUT that melon!

Ha! That's like my goat, Lucky Nickel, with a pumpkin, and she doesn't let the sheep go anywhere near it.
