Learned last night that my neighbor Pat's
running up and down the hill with the sheep
was not a training session with Jack but an
attempt to separate the lambs from the ewes
because the sheep-shearer was on his way
and lambs and ewes must be apart for this.
At one point, one of the ewes jumped the fence
along with her lamb, and set off for one
of the islands (the tide was out). A neighbor
happened to be passing by on his boat, and he
nabbed the lamb, but mama-sheep wouldn't budge,
so Pat and neighbor had to drag and lift her
into the boat. Apparently very frustrating,
but the next day all the sheep ran hide-naked
about the field.
