Remember that part in the movie, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” when our heroes are being tracked relentlessly by lawmen? In the old days, Butch and the Kid had had free rein to rob passing trains. But with time comes progress and with progress comes change and change is seldom good for the incumbents. So it was that our sheeply Gang of 5 greeted with some large dollop of suspicion the tarp that suddenly appeared without explanation yesterday on a 10×15 foot plot of land in the pasture. It is covering what will soon be a coop. And where there is a coop, chickens are rarely far behind. But that’s getting a little ahead of the story for our sweet sheep. All they know is something has changed. Not good for the incumbents.
