Last one in's a sissy!

The weanlings have had me in stitches today, we woke to a covering of snow and the weanlings had decided that they would have a bit of a lay in.

They have a set routine, breakfast then off to play in their daytime field (which only has tree shelter and no field shelter) then back into the main field for tea and off to bed in the field shelter. This morning after they had finished breakfast Horatio gave the signal (hummed in Aodhfin's ear) and in unison all six of them scarpered back to the field shelter.

By the time I had turned the troughs and walked over they were all sat down and making it quite clear that they didn't think the weather was fit to play out in today!

I left them and went to feed the main herd and give Gaussian his bottle. By the time I had fed everyone and filled all the hay mangers and come back they had decided that they wanted to play in the playground after all and Horatio was sat at the gate waiting to be let in.

Again tonight once they had eaten their tea on Horatio's hum they all shot off to the shelter, last one in's a sissy! Just in case you were wondering Lualeni was the sissy!!!

I can spend hours watching their antics. I forget that I'm supposed to be doing barn chores and just sit down and watch.
Aren't we the luckiest folks in the world?
