I swear…lambs are totally nuts….!
I recently biked along a meadow, when I saw some strange white movements from the corner of my eye.
Some lambs were jumping around like crazy and for a moment I wondered if they might be suffering Mad Sheep Disease…
But after watching them for a while I discovered some logic…
All right, their game was a bit rough, but they did have their own lamb rules and associated lamb logic.
1. Lamb Stacking
Taking a firm mother sheep as a solid base, a nice lamb stack can be built, up to 10 lambs high!
Goal: stacking as much lambs on one sheep as possible.
2. Leap Lambing / Leap sheeping
Mother plays ‘frog’ by laying motionless, while the kids jump simultaneously or by turns over her.
Her head can be used to make even higher jumps.
3. Levitating Lamb
The rules are very simple: Everything is allowed as long as your paws don’t touch the ground.
There’s only one thing I just can’t put my finger on: How does such a cute & enthusiastic lamb transform in this kinda boring sweater on legs…?
Where in the process from lamb to sheep does it go wrong…? 😉
Wow these are amazing!!!!
Wonderful! Loved what you captured.
These are awesome. I drove by a farm once and two adult goats were squaring off. I really wanted to stop and take a few pictures, but they were a bit far away for my camera.
Hopefully you’ll have another chance.
To both see and capture these acrobatics 😉
amazing capture, love it
Fantastic, thank you for sharing 🙂
These photos are amazing. I had so much fun looking at them and reading your blog. It would have been so much fun to see it in person. Thanks so much for sharing. I needed a smile.
They’re such energetic children!
that´s the greatest game nature has come up with !!, I can´t believe they´re actually playing to leapfrog !!!, I wish I had Iseen it in person, thank you so much for sharing.
amazing shots! i love your photos so much! and these lambs are just cuter than cute
Thanks for this smile-inducing blogpost Roeselien, love your sense of humour and from your pictures I completely agree: lambs are indeed nuts – LOL 😉
