ALICE Doesn't Like Sheep....
Ever since Alice came to live in the Bluff Country (in 2001), she has been a loner. She did have one friend, "Stephanie" ~ a ewe that came with her, when I bought Alice. But I sold Stephanie a few years later ~ when she started fighting with Alice ~ any ewe that fights with Alice gets sold. End of story.
Ever since Stephanie left, Alice has been a complete loner. I often feel sad for her, staying off by herself. So, in 2007, I decided to keep Alice's ewe lamb: "Bluff Country Destiny", so that Alice would always have a friend/companion.
Destiny was one of Triplets and as usual, Alice kept her babies as far away from me and the rest of the flock as she could.
Which, of course, made Destiny a bit of a "Wild Child"
Needless to say, Destiny grew up to be quite the Beauty!
With her dam's regal bearing and flawless confirmation
It is obvious to me that ear carriage (attitude???) is hereditary...
Alice is hardly ever seen off by herself anymore
She always has her "Destiny"
"Kind of like how You have Me, Mom?"
That's right, Dreamer ~ kind of like how I have you.
