Daisy and I came home this morning from our daily Minion Rugby Match, to see Iacs by himself – always a bad sign.

Iacs shares his field with his cousin, Haakon, as well as Klængur.  They were within eyesight but not exactly close by. They were having their mid-morning snooze.

So, armed with a headcollar, a big bag of yesterday’s carrots as well as the all-important-never-leaving-my-side small black sheep, I went to free Iacs from where he had managed to get himself stuck.

Luckily, Iacs put his head over the wall and, with his headcollar on, I led him to a part where the wall had rumbled. He carefully walked over it to rejoin his friends.  It didn’t dawn on him to do this himself – he has only lived in this field for over 20 years.

(note – the stupendous silly-frilly hair-do!)

The carrots were shared out.  Everyone was very pleased to see them.

And me and my small black sheep, the headcollar and a now-empty bag of carrots went back home safe in the knowledge that everyone was where they should be – except possibly for the small black sheep, aka Maggie, who refuses to be with the other sheep and just trails round after me all day!

    Maggie has definitely found here “person”. It is way past time for imprinting (I think) so maybe it is a case of what we call cupboard love. Food is always a great incentive, and since she had such a traumatic time being a hill sheep , she is gonna stay glued to the food giver .
    All the best to everyone furred/ hoofed/ wooly/ feathered too. White cat says to give his cuz Monster a scratch for him and maybe a treat too 😉
    All the Best,

    Impressive that Maggie has formed such a strong bond with you so quickly. She clearly knows when she’s well off!

    Well, looks like you’ve got a real buddy there in Maggie. She certainly has good taste in people…..and carrots! Glad you helped Iacs out of his dilemma. Poor thing. Things are always interesting at your place!
