Sheep in a Jeep

Becca has been dreaming of this day for months and months and it finally arrived! Today was the day that Rebecca brought her two sheep, Little Smudge (darker colored) and Mighty Moses (lighter colored), home to Bentley. My sisters and I drove to the Albany area to two small farms where her sheep had been growing since Rebecca last visited them. We put the sheep in a tub in our Pilot (not a jeep, actually). Little Smudge jumped out of the tub and landed in the trunk, but by the time that Mighty Moses and Little Smudge were both in the tub, their nerves seemed to be calmed and they almost enjoyed the ride home. When we got home, both of the sheep ran right through the electric fence, not seeming to mind the rather shocking experience!
