We took Monroe to a herding instinct test. She had never seen sheep before. At first she thought herding sheep was a game like chasing geese at the park. It is one of her favorite thrills to suddenly race at the birds and set them all to flight. After a few minutes with the sheep, though, she had the rules to this new "gather and control" game all figured out. She had a wonderful time! Makes me wish for a farm of my own with sheep for Monroe to chase and wool for me to spin into yarn.
