Sweet Scottie

Fate circling Merricat, Constance and Scott

The sheep happily ran through the open gate, eager to get to the pasture that I had closed off for a few days.  The three lambs, wandered away from the adult sheep, which tells me that they feel safe on the farm.

I sat down on the ground to watch them and within moments, Scott came up to me.  He put his face close to mine and just stood there.  So I scratched his head then his neck all the time we were nose to nose.

This went on for about ten minutes then he just turned and walked away.

Asher and Issachar will come up to me and let me pet them, but they were bottle-fed so that not unusual.   But I’ve never had any of the sheep behave the way Scott did.

I’m still not sure what to make of it. I wonder if he’ll do it again.

  1. How sweet that Scott stayed close for that long. I think animals just know your special aura, Maria.
    There is almost no way to describe the deep feeling of having an animal come close and trust us. It’s a different space.

  2. Scottie reminds me of my goat Glitter. She was such a love bug. She was pure white like an angel. She would come up to me like your Scott and put her face next to mine. I loved it so much. I love your herd Maria, I don’t know if I will have another herd again. I am glad I can live with yours through your writing.
