While waiting for Purdy to eat her breakfast grain this is an ongoing conversation I have with Purl one of our Lincoln Longwools and my favorite sheep next to Ewestace of course.
Purl: I see you brought Purdy grain for breakfast again…
Me: Why yes Purl I did.
Purl: I see and why do I not get grain?
Me: Well Purl you don’t need grain to be nice you’re just friendly all the time. Purdy however will become a feral beast if I don’t bribe her with grain daily.
Purl: So basically your saying that I should be mean and I will get treats… this seems wrong.
Me: No, Purl if you were mean that would just mean that I would need to bring the border collie more often to do chores and make you do what I wanted. Purdy however won’t listen to the dog and she spits.
Purl: Right new life goal learn to spit!
