>like I can come now!!!!! he's like no no 1:30pm. So I sit and stew, sit
>stew and at 1:25pm I'm out the door. Arrive at said barn no one there yet,
>see him coming. I'm standing there with two leashes and collars in my hand
>and he says come into the barn, okay. Now he's carrying a big bottle with
>nipple on it, YA AT THIS POINT I'M WEIRDED OUT and is calling around the
>barn and I see NOTHING!!!! Eventually two Lambs about a month old came out
>and were very startled by him and even more by me, he asked me to back off
>for a sec until they got started on their bottle and then asked me to come
>forward. So I'm watching them feed and telling him how adorable they are
>and I glance sideways. WELL %*(#@@% there's a dead lamb laying right
>:( I'm devastated, I think my dogs have done it, I ask him and he says oh
>no that one got caught under the feeder and died (apparently this isn't
>uncommon) and he'd brought it in the barn but hadn't disposed of it yet!!!!
>Now I know I'm in a nightmare, so I wait while he feeds the lambs and tells
>me about dogs chasing his sheep and a bunch of different sort of crap that

>never talked to me again. I'm like OH SHIT he's shot my dogs, no he says
