No Wonder Sheep Are Dumb
The Saanen goat, Pippin, and Tiger, a wethered sheep, are both about a year old and have become really good friends and play together. Yesterday they decided on a rousing game of "head butt". Pippin reared up on her hind legs and Tiger came in from about 3' away. But they got a bit over-exuberant about it. They came charging at each other and you could hear heads crack. They both looked a little dazed, shook their heads to clear the birdies that I'm sure they were both seeing and did it again. I can just hear their conversation: "Hey! that hurt! What a rush! Yeah, lets do it again!" Wonder if that causes brain damage?
