Baaasil:  All kinds of change!!

(written from the perspective of Baaasil the ewe lamb)

Translated by: Autumn Kotrba

Life has been crazy, I can tell you that. First there’s a bunch of white fluffy stuff called snow that fell from the sky. It was so fun to play in. It disappeared multiple times, but it came back after leaving for a couple days. It can be kind of unpredictable. 

Then the farm kids stayed at home! I always have a lot more fun when they are outside playing. They’re talking  about this thing called the Coronavirus a lot. I have no idea what it means, but they seem to know what it is, so that’s good.

This old guy came to the barn one day and after he left I felt like I could fly! And everyone looked different after they went over to the man. They looked less…what’s the word…fluffy. I ran around for hours with Oreo Blizzard, it was the most fun I had had in my entire life. 

Guess who came to the farm next? I bet you can’t. Five small pink things the humans call pigs. I heard the others talking about the three they had known from the year before. They said the pigs had mysteriously disappeared as the leaves started to change colors. Pinckney has been trying to solve the mystery for a long time now.

The humans seemed to have a lot of fun with the new arrivals too. I saw them chasing the one called Ronnie around the yard outside the pasture. It was quite fun to watch. The exchange lasted about forty five minutes before they put Ronnie back in the pen with his siblings. And he did not seem happy about it. 

As you can tell, my life has been crazy, but don’t worry, I’ll keep you updated.
