Our Little Honor Student

"Lambs should start ruminating (chewing cud) around three weeks old." Keebler won't be three weeks until Wednesday and he's been doing this for several days already! We're so proud. But not too surprised. We're all a bunch of good eaters around here ;-).



So what exactly is chewing his cud? Well, first he eats some grass. If you listen closely you can hear him...between bird calls.



He can even eat laying down, half asleep.



Then, if you watch closely you can see him burp up some half chewed grass and chew on it some more. In his sleep. With his cute little ears hanging down in "sleep mode". With his trusty Border Collie.

It's super hot here and sitting under a shade tree with Keebler is not a bad place to be this afternoon.



Enjoy!

Keeble is darling! I like how you got the back of his head, with his soft little ears looking so touchable.

You can send your heat this way! We are more than ready.

O.K. I'm all in, Keebler is the cutest thing I've ever seen!!! It warms this truck drivers heart to see him and trust me not much does these days, thanks for sharing..:-)

I can see from the way he looks right at the camera in the third video, that he is quite proud of his burping and chewing accomplishment. He is so much trying to be a big boy now..... and he is just baby yet!

I HOPE you are bringing him to the Bluegrass. I think there might be some cute photo ops if he and June get to meet.

So advanced for his age!

You could send some of that green grass our way! (Minnesota)...and maybe a Keebler clone... :D
