Alex loves to go on adventures. Today he decided to go to what he thought was the zoo.
He left his chaperon Sara at the gate and the excitement soon began!
“Lil’Man, look at those strange animals! They are so lucky we can’t get through these bars.”
“I think the humans call this one a ‘Gardenia’. I think that means ‘fat’ in human, look at how big her belly is. I heard the Goat Mom say that the Gardenia is ‘expecting’ something real soon, I wonder what it could be?”
“OOH, this one is called a ‘Jeepers’. I don’t know what that name means but it sure is woolly. Hey, there is something moving behind it – look out they could be dangerous! Sara!!!!”
“Alma, did you see how fast those two ran off! Let’s go see what kind of lambs they are, maybe they are Gardenia’s.”
“Albion, for Gardenia’s sake I sure hope they aren’t her lambs because they have terrible looking wool.”
“Alex we’re trapped! Those little ‘Jeepers’ are coming after us.”
“Did you close the door Lil’Man? Sara, help! You two stand back, you know what they say about how viscous goats can be once they have their backs up against a wall. Sara!!!!!”
“Albion, do you know what a Sara is? Maybe it is what those things call the Sheep Lady?”
“Don’t be silly Alma, the Sheep Lady would be embarrassed to be seen with those things. They don’t even have any curls in their wool. Let’s go back and see what mom thought of those two strange looking sheep.”
“Alma how much did you weigh today? The Sheep Lady seemed really happy that I gained 3 lbs and weigh 9.5 lbs.”
“I weigh 8 lbs now, I gained 2.5 lbs in 5 days!”
