I swear, lambs are totally nuts! One day, I biked along a meadow, when I suddenly witnessed some strange white movements from the corner of my eye. Some lambs were jumping around like crazy, and for a moment I wondered if they might be suffering Mad Sheep Disease. After watching them for a while I discovered at least some logic though. Their game was a bit rough, but they seemed to have their own lamb rules and associated lamb logic.
1. Lamb Stacking
Taking a firm mother sheep as a solid base, a nice lamb stack can be built, up to ten lambs high!
2. Leap Lambing / Leap sheeping
Mother plays 'frog' by laying motionless, while the kids jump simultaneously or by turns over her.
3. Levitating Lamb
The rules are very simple: Everything is allowed as long as your paws don't touch the ground. Screw gravity!
There's only one thing I just can't put my finger on: How does such a cute and enthusiastic lamb transform in a kinda boring sweater on legs...? Where in the process from lamb to sheep does it go wrong...?
