Ok, be honest here, how many of you have witnessed the birth of a live animal? I'm raising my hand because today on my ride I saw a sheep born. I was riding along and looked into the herd of sheep because one was making a lot of noise. That is when I noticed the one laying on the ground bellowing because she was pushing a baby out of her through an opening that was arguably too small for the baby sheep coming out of it.
I was riding with Steven Cozza and Daryl Impey, and we decided to swing around and watch this amazing act of nature. It was truly incredible. I didn't take any pictures or film, but I wish I had. It was pretty neat. After the birth, the mother sheep just got up and walked away. She continued to pasture about 50meters away, while the baby struggled to figure out what was happening. We waited to see if it would stand/walk, but after 5 or so minutes, we decided to finish our training. It was a very interesting even to witness.
For the training, it was nice. Great to have guys to ride with and very nice to catch up with Steven and Daryl. The weather has finally turned nice, and I am hoping it stays for a little while now. It is off to spend a nice afternoon with my wife now! Cheers.
