Always Something

Morning comes and Tom hears the baaa of one of the sheep in trouble coming from the cliffs. As Tom scrambles up the cliffs he sees the new ewe stranded. Louise and Pinto, with lots of experience in the cliffs run up to where she is and then turn around and show her how to get down, which she promptly does. It's quiet again. Then Tom hears a roar coming from Kobae's pen. Once or twice a year, Kobae eats something that doesn't agree with him, (two inch piece of tile, necktie, packing peanuts, gravel, paper towel, five year old camel crap.....). Tom has tried to help by putting water down him, romaine lettuce, and cucumbers with no luck. Kobae just has to gut it out on his own. It's not a pleasant sight or sound and can last off and on for hours.
