Have you ever had one of THOSE animals?
You know the kind, they can open any gate, any feed box, any latch, they get out of any fence, barn, holding pen. You name it, they can and will be on the other side when you come back.
Well we have Mary, well her real name is Mary had a Little (not so little any more) Lamb. Named by our 2 yrs granddaughter This will be the 3rd summer with Mary. She was a orphon , mother died giving birth. So she was in the kitchen in a dog crate till it warmed up and we moved her to the porch, then the barn. So she thinks she is a cat/dog/goat/chicken/duck but NOT a sheep. We had baby ducks and chicks in the kitchen at the same time. Yes, she gets into the outside cat feed anytime she can!
We have had the ones who can open gates before but nothing like Mary. There is NO way other than a chain and padlock that we have found to lock the gates that Mary has not be able to open. It may take 2-3 days for her to figure it out but we come home from work and she has opened the gate and is standing in the driveway waiting for us. Now it wouldn't be so bad but she lets everyone else out too. She opens the door to the feed shed (that told about 10 min). Opens totes with bungee straps on (that took 1 day). I saw her checking out the car door the other day, so I'm sure I'll come home one day it that being open also.
Oh the fun we have, life would be so boring if it wasn't for animals like Mary!
