Father's Day Visit!

We were working with the sheep, trimming hooves, refreshing lamb paint numbers, and running them through the zinc sulfate footbath, etc. this evening.   The lambs have never seen the footbath, so they don't want to walk through it.  They balk and then finally take huge bounding leaps through it, kicking and splashing up a mess!   You don't want a camera anywhere near that scene.  Anyway, in all of the excitement and confusion that comes with working with lambs, this lamb squirted through the gate & into the ram's pen in the barn.  Of course the lamb didn't know what to do next and the ram seemed to mostly ignore this little interloper ....... Coincidence, or was it a Father's Day visit? :)
