This did not work I am afraid. R and I were walking up the hill to the waterfall. A lamb was baaing its head off and I was genuinely upset that it was in trouble. I mentioned this to R and said it would be a good idea to rescue the lamb as it had obviously lost Mum. Then the rain started to come down in sheets and I decided to come back, leaving R to carry on. When I got home I took my Surface and put a looping audio clip of a lamb and its Mum baaing. I then installed it behind the door. Before R got back I printed off a picture of a Ewe and a lamb and left it stuck in the door with a message in it – saying “Call me before you come in”
When R came back, he called me and I tried to convince him that I had rescued a lamb and started to bring it home – only to find that Mum was following us and had come in to the house as well.
Unfortunately he did not believe me – largely because I had printed off the picture and he didn’t think I would have done that if I had been in a panic with two sheep in the house.
