So I set out this morning on my mission to get a photo for hug a sheep day. Rain clothes, a warm hat and my iPhone in its waterproof case in hand, I headed out to the farm. I had in my head that the hug-ee would be Badger, AKA 1203. She was the single lamb of my katahdin ewe who survived a dog attack last November. As a side bonus, she is quite cute.
Phase 1 of the plan: Explain Hug a Sheep Day to the ewe and catch her up. Badger was entirely unconvinced that this is a real holiday and was not impressed with my explanation. A true skeptic, she required convincing, so I called in some reinforcements.
|Lucy helps Badger see the wisdom in my plan...|
Once the reinforcements arrived, I was able to move to phase 2 of the plan: capture Badger.
|Ha! Gotcha, Badger! She still looks unimpressed...|
|Success! Badger hugged, captured on film! Well, on iPhone at least.|
