There we were, bedtime and all was settling down in the pasture, when our HC came and told us we needed to come upstairs. Upstairs to her pasture. Telling the flock to go to sleep and leaving Willie in charge, as the oldest Ovine, we followed her up the stairs. Ellis asked what she wanted us to go to her pasture for at this time of night, "You'll See" was the only answer she gave. Once in her pasture she point to the other side of her sleeping place so I followed Ellis as we moved about the foot of her bed to the other side. Again Ellis ask what was there to see. "Up and Over on the blue dresser on top of the Indian Blanket" she said pointing toward it.

Finally without us asking she reached down and us lifted up onto her bed. We both walked toward the dresser.......and then we saw. The fleece balls and the collecting area for future fleece balls.

I said "you mean the glass under the pile of fleece waiting to be wound?" No came the answer. "You and Ellis are looking at the wrong end of the pile, the other end." Both Ellis and I looked very carefully and at just as he started to say "All I see is more"~~~it moved??? Every so slightly but both Ellis and I stood quite still and watched it and yes, there it was again. It seemed to be gently swaying from side to side.

At that point Ellis said "OK, lets go see what is behind the fleece pile." Our HC said "no just wait a moment, we don't want to scare it away". Then a sound, a tiny little bleat! The sort of sound young lambs make when standing beside their mothers when they are a bit timid. And again the bleat. At that point, a little head popped up and looked out over the fleece pile!!!

Ellis and I just stood quietly for a moment, then I said to the little lamb "Welcome home little one, you will be safe now". With a bit of bleating the little lamb came around the fleece pile and stood. Ellis said to me, "she is still scared of us I think. I'll go down and find a place for her tonight in the pasture. Perhaps Callopie and Sullivan would be the best to care for her tonight."

Ellis left the bed and went downstairs and the little lamb with the littlest of steps began to come to me. "Hello you pretty little lamb. I'm Esme the Ewe and you will be safe here. By what name shall we call you?"

And she bleated very softly........Grace.

Always with open pasture gates,
Esme the Ewe
