Yesterday was the day for standing on someone else. I know that isn't quite leapfrog, but that is what popped in my head. I went out to find the little Calico ewe lamb from the last batch of triplets standing on one of last year's lambs. He seemed pretty unconcerned - he is well over 200 lbs, so I can see why he didn't care. I do notice that the lambs enjoy standing or laying on the back of the rams or wethers . It must be more comfy than the ground and the ewes are relatively impatient with their offspring when it comes to feeding time.
I did see all the lambs jumping from back to back of the adults - I remember doing that in the living room decades ago - playing with my sister that the ground was hot lava and you had to jump from couch to chair. The adult sheep didn't seem the slightest bit concerned, in spite of the sharp little hooves.
The chickens were just jumping on anyone - my shoulder, various sheep, the top of the gate. I dislike chickens flapping at my face in hopes of getting the grain first, so that make me a bit cranky. Nasty evolved dinosaurs giving me the stink eye with those sharp beaks near my eyes. Yeah, not a fan of leap frog with chickens, by no means.
As I look out at the sky through my office windows (it's lunch), I can see that there is a fair amount of vog. Maybe we'll have some dry weather for awhile. However, if I look the other way - up Mauka - the clouds are piling up. I really, really, really want to get out in my garden. I just found out I have an unexpected day off on Friday and a nice three day weekend gardening and canning sounds like a GREAT plan. I have an abundance of jalapenos and lemons. I was thinking my marmalade and trying to can some pickled pepper slices (not in the same jar, of course) would be just the thing.
I will pray for your weather, if you will pray for mine!
