It's Still Sheep and Llamas

We've noticed that our black sheep George tends to hang out with the llamas. He eats with them and always seems to be where they are. I fished around on the Internet to see if that behavior is source of the term "black sheep," but I couldn't find anything that relates to term to animal behavior. It seems to be something coined for human behavior. George is an odd duck, a bit reticent, so perhaps he just hangs with llamas because he wants to hang with llamas. He's the one who comes to fence and rubs noses with Buster, our Queenie.



Here, on the other hand, here are the light sheep. Robbie is the dominant in this group. He won an award at the Lane County Fair in Eugene for best yearling lamb. He wasn't wethered until after the fair so has a wonderful set of horns. (To see them, click for big.) Our grandson Kiernan named him Robbie the Ram, (in Kiernan-speak that's Wobbie the Wam) because his daddy is a fan of the St. Louis Rams. Mim points out that he's actually Wobbie the Wetheu.


In the end, it's still sheep and llamas. What you see is our mama llama moving the sheep back to the shed. She lowers her head and walks their way and they run. They acted scared for their lives, but when they get there, they stop, wait for her to turn around and then follow her back. A woman who lives across the valley told me that she loves to watch our guys through her field glasses. They really are wonderful entertainment.

Watching animals is so much fun. I always get a kick out of almost any animal or birds antics.

We have said that from the nature of the association mechanism the dream process more thyroid easily takes possession of recent or indifferent material which has not yet been seized by the waking mental activity; and by reason of the censor it transfers the psychic intensity from the important but also disagreeable to the indifferent material.. The Colonel picked it up, fitting the shining blade in it, clicked the spring, and then rising, with a face imdur of courtesy yet of unmistakably genuine pain, and with even a slight tremor in his voice, said, gravely: Mr.. I could 'a' got more! Now viagra where can we make ourselves comfortable with this furniture? Uncle Billy chirked up.. When we say that a foreconscious idea is repressed and subsequently taken up by the unconscious, we might be tempted by these figures, borrowed from the idea of a struggle over a territory, to assume that an arrangement is really broken up in one psychic locality and replaced by a new one in the other calcium locality.. That delightful old-fashioned zithromax fireplace in the middle apartment makes it an ideal sitting-room, and the beds are so roomy and comfortable..

It will be put to you, gentlemen, when the counsel on the other side refrains from mere interruption and confines himself to reply, that my motrin unfortunate client has no action--no remedy at law--because there were no spoken words of endearment..
