So last night just as I was going to bed at around 1 am (an early night), I heard an insistent baaaaaaaa. I wandered outside in my slippers to check who was calling and there was a lone sheep outside the house yard fence, where 16 sheep are currently living. All 16 were present. Uh, oh I thought, someone got left out.
I padded outside, slippers crunching on the frosty earth, and she took me all the way to the sheep home paddock, where once I put her through the gate, other sheep got up from their slumber and ran to greet her. Smart I thought, to come and get me.
Her name is Una, and she is amazing.
And she knew I would answer her call.
