what a chalkblocker....

Well folks, there is some serious testosterone up in the sheep field right now. Atlas is out of the pen—doing his level best to make new sheep—but I've noticed every time he's about to get his game on Sal comes out of nowhere and butts him away from the ladies. At first, it was comical. Now it's just stopping the necessary sheep love that makes this place tick. So tonight or tomorrow Sal is getting penned up for a while so Atlas can finally swerve in peace and mark those ewe rumps with the orange chalk of victory.

That is too funny. Good old Sal. Has Atlas tried to charm Maude? Chalk it up to experience Atlas.

LOL I completely understand! We've got a fiber wether here who certainly has claimed one of our does and had something to say to the visiting buck who was trying to "chalk" the girls until the buck told him to BACK OFF!!!

I love that a farm chick like you can still use words like "swerve". That is why you are the best.

Ha! I have a rooster that does that to the other rooster. The hens are pretty happy about it, but neither rooster is. Can't wait to see if Atlas can get Maude in the family way!
