Ram vs Gelding

Sometimes I wish I just had a video camera strapped to my head, or perhaps just an iPhone in my pocket.

My husband came home early and let the sheep out into the bigger pasture.  I came home a few hours later and Audrey and the streaky lamb were out on the front lawn.  Apparently, now that Scarlett has moved, they feel that the horse stall is not off-limits, and once in the horse stall, the ewes can just squeeze through the galvanized pipe panels.

Elvis was trying to assert his ram-ness but the horses weren't having it.  Well, patient paint was just standing there looking at him - Elvis didn't know what to do, because he couldn't reach anything to butt satisfactorily and Ohia wasn't impressed.  So Elvis turned to Gib - who promptly bit him on the head.  Not hard, just a warning.

Elvis obviously felt that Ohia was better company, because he went and stood nose to nose to him.

I really wanted a camera.

Poor Elvis, I feel for him right now... Get a Cannon digital, good for your blog too.

Btw couldn't load your "AArrrgghh" - whatever happened to it?

Grandpa, I have a decent digital, but never have it just in my hand when something funny happens! I need something in my pocket....

Blogger was being weird on me - thought I lost all my followed blogs - posted about it and then logged out and back in and there they were, so I took the rant down :).

I don't know what to say other than you need to start carrying your camera. A picture of the gelding biting your ram on the head would have been priceless.
