Anonymous Mischief

The Guinea was in the tree going crazy, but was this the normal crazy or the something odd is happening out here crazy? It is hard to tell with Guineas, both situations provide the listener with quite an earful!

When I got outside I checked the goats, no problems. The rams, nothing…the chickens were fine too. That left the girls and when I got out to their barn I found someone had gotten into hay and grain stall.

What is it they say? The criminals always return to the scene of the crime? If that is true then there they are, peeking around the corner.

I don’t know how they got in there, sheep aren’t as mischievous as goats you know, but yet they did. I guess pregnant (hopefully) ewes need snacks, but next time they need to ask!

Don’t forget to visit Verde Farm for Farm Friend Friday!

    And don't they also say that mischieviousness is a sign of intelligence? So, not only do you have incredibly beautiful sheep, you also have geniuses in your herd. How lucky can you be?:-)

  2. Chai Chai says:

    I'm convinced that Kia (the sheep with the white patch on her head) is more intelligent than everyone else on this hobby farm except for me (The Commander included)! She looks at you with those eyes and you just know she is plotting something…

  3. The guinea is so smart to know when someone else is mischievious! Don't you just love them?! I do!

    Your comment on my blog just now made me laugh because I was *totally* thinking of you when I decided to post that last picture. 🙂 :-)A challenge, you say? Sure! lol

    Lynn – I was just telling the Commander how much I missed listening to the guineas because they were spending so much time in the coop. I wonder how many folks would ever make that statement!Farmgirl – Maybe if you made a post calling all your readers out to sneak a picture of themselves on their blogs…..

  6. Farmgirl_dk: says:

    What if I do a blog post just calling you to post a photo? 🙂

  7. Chai Chai says:

    Farmgirl – Aren't you curious about "who" everyone else is as well?

  8. Farmgirl_dk: says:

    Mmmmm….Wait, let me think. No.:-)

  9. Farmgirl_dk: says:

    Heh. Really, though…most other bloggers that I correspond with have already posted photos of themselves..either in their profile pic or in random post photos. You're one of the few holdouts. 🙂

  10. lol that is just too cute they are looking like "what??? i did not do it…..i swear!"

  12. kia is adorable. i just found you from farm friend friday. do you only have one guinea? you kitties are gorgeous. i have nine beautiful felines, all spoiled and loved so their homeless years are long forgotten.

    Farmgirl – Lets see what I can come up with.Periwinkle – The sheep seem to be more cunning and deliberate than the goats, the goats are mischievous and playful.Buttons – Thank you for stopping by and commenting! Guineas are great at eating ticks (we have a lot here in NE MN) but they are very, very, very noisy!Kritter Keeper – Thank you for stopping by and commenting as well. We started with 10 guineas but something got 4 of them one night so I'm now down to six. They are like farm alarms, always watching and screaming when something different is happening. It is wonderful that you were able to provide a nice home for those poor cats, I hope you spoil them now.

    I am constantly finding Audrey in the front yard. She is the only one who pulls the houdini – I guess the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. She doesn't go far, and the whole property is fenced, but I want her to stay on her side of the interior fences :)!

  15. Chai Chai says:

    Nancy – When my dad would visit Orchid (the other black sheep) would always get on the other side of the fence and he could never figure out how. I think sheep can jump really high when no one is watching.

  16. Stace says:

    I have a sheep named Ada…she should have been named Houdini. That sheep can break out of a safe that has been chained shut and buried…if she thinks shes hungry. I think that sheep are smarter than we think. I watched a lamb jump 4' straight up in the air to get over a fence this summer. So yeah, they can jump if motivated. I think they have springs in their knees.

  17. Chai Chai says:

    Stace – I think the Icelandic's and there offshoots are smarter than your average sheep, may be a survival thing. I know the Icelandic Leader sheep are one or two cuts above.

  18. Karen says:

    Are those Icelandic Sheep? If so, we should have some here, my hubby is of Icelandic heritage:)Hay I don't mind the sheep getting into, but grain I'm paranoid about, as that can have disastrous results.We had dorsets with horns, I found they were handy for grabbing the sheep with:)

  19. Chai Chai says:

    Karen – The are an Icelandic Hybrid, Cascade sheep. Cascade's are smaller and easier to handle (I think). The grain is kept in the barrel just for instances like this.

  20. Gotta love the little tattle tale! The girls do look a little guilty:@)

  21. Chai Chai says:

    Lyn – Thanks for stopping by! Love the little smiling pig symbol. The are guilty, I just can't prove it!

  22. Jennifer says:
