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.
