Don’t Tell Me What I Can’t Do August 28, 2013

OK, so the above video of a rabbit herding sheep alpacas sheep, having watched the dog and learned to do it, is just awesome. And so too is this story about a 96-year-old songwriter who wrote a song for his late wife.

We will not always achieve what we try to. But that is not a good reason not to try.

And yes, you do know that phrase from the title of this post from somewhere…

    Nope. They’re sheep. Don’t know where you got the idea they might be alpacas…

      On that, one of my children commented yesterday that the neighbour had new ‘long necked sheep’. Which is pretty much all alpacas are, to be fair.

      • Someone on Facebook said they were alpacas, after I called them sheep, and I was looking at it on a relatively small screen, and was inclined to believe them. I honestly have no idea what they are. But I am pretty sure that is a rabbit herding them! 🙂

    And that rabbit’s a killer!
