As Sammy moved about the yard, Kaz kept running from side to side right behind him and then coming up near his rump and nipping him. He wasn't biting, just playing with him with his soft mouth like when you give him a dog bone. Sammy, however, doesn't like him approaching from the rear so action was inevitable.
Suddenly Sammy slipped in the side door of the trailer and Kaz had no idea where he was. He stopped for a moment and then resumed his circular route around the trailer. On about the third pass, Sammy came out the door, turned in the opposite direction and when Kaz came around the back ramp Sammy was headed directly for him, lifting his front legs off the ground and smacking him pretty good with his nubbed head (his horns were removed for just this reason) on the shoulders.
The look on Kaz's face told it all and the big fella' just turned and walked away toward our deck. He sulked for a few minutes as his pride was hurt, but then he was fine. Within two or three minutes they were at it again, albeit with Kaz behaving a little more cautiously and gently.
This little event needed to happen for Kaz now knows that Sammy has his own defense system and he will be much wiser for it. As for Sammy, he just strutted around for a while bleating his victory call before returning to his usual favorite pastime which means trying to eat my wife's roses.
Each and every animal has a style of his own and all of his playmates on the farm needs to learn about it and how to respond. The one rule we have here on the Ark is if you want to stay you have to get along. So far we have had very few new family members who don't play by the rules; when they don't they have to leave which means we find them another home. But the Lord has ways of making them understand which makes for an interesting environment around us.
The Ark lives on and we thank God for his love and guidance in making it a success. And today is a good day, the Sabbath, for each of us to thank Him for what he does for us. After all, He is our salvation. God bless you all.
