The farmer had left the gate open.
Norma felt such extreme excitement at this realisation that the poor old ewe nearly choked on the grass she was eating.
Norma looked around to make sure she wasn’t being watched and then made for the gate like a slow and wobbly bat outta hell.
Norma trotted as fast as she could, but the Farmer was pulling up his truck and throwing her in the back before she had a chance to blink.
The Farmer put Norma back in the paddock and locked the gate.
Norma sat defeated, dreaming of her almost escape.
