Behavior Modification

Scene: The lambs are in the barn. The ram and ewe are out in the field, plowing and planting. Find large root and pull it up. Decide it looks like a bullwhip and start hitting a tree with it to see who can get it louder (hillbillies, remember?) Laughing, lots. Hoping The Neighbor doesn't drive by and witness the activities, especially since someone ripped her skirt falling, er, climbing off the tractor. It was quite hilarious.

Lamb (coming out of barn): MOM, MY SIBLING (names withheld to protect the guilty).....uh....what are y'all doing?
Sheep (trying to supress laughter): Practicing.
Lamb returns to barn and all lambs are unusually well-behaved for the rest of the day.
