The sheep you see peeking up over Orchid with the white patch on top of her head is Kia. Kia is the most intelligent of our sheep, I think she may have some Icelandic Leader Sheep traits in her. Follow this link to a great story about Leader Sheep in action.
Periwinkle Farm asked in the last post about Orchid sleeping in the food hay, "If any other sheep are trying this?" I didn't think so, until yesterday!
When I went out to feed the chickens two days ago look at what I saw. All the other sheep were in the barn, but I thought I saw Orchid in the outdoor food bowl. As I got closer I saw the white patch and knew it was Kia. She has been doing this for the past few days, lounging all alone, outside in the feed bowl.
I can't imagine why she is doing this outside during the day. Maybe she is keeping lookout like a Leader Sheep would do? Either that or she has heard from Noah and is preparing for the next big flood!
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
