Monday Musing - Unlikely Friends

Little Peep and Ruby Tuesday

Little Peep has grown to become a Big Peep now. We will not be changing her name though. Life has changed for Little Peep. She appears to be happy about the changes.

Little Peep evidently believes that she has 9 lives. I have explained to her that she is a chicken, not a cat. She doesn’t seem to mind and we hope that she will remain far away from catastrophe now that she is older.

Little Peep once lived alone. She could watch the others through the fence, but could not socialize with them. Little Peep was seen as weak by the other girls, that ability to stop and stare off into space did not help much either. Little Peep now lives the life that she once dreamed about.

Little Peep in now the head hen of her own flock! She is the boss and tells the younger girls what to do and scolds them if they do not listen. There is a rooster in the flock and Little Peep keeps him in line. He has learned that the girls eat any treats first, his job is to protect the girls from harm. The rooster is always at work. Little Peep’s social skills were not missing, they were just hidden and waiting to come out.

Little Peep has long conversations with her neighbor Ruby Tuesday. I wonder what they talk about. Did Ruby tell Little Peep which pocket I keep the special goat treats in? Do they discuss the types of worms that Little Peep looks for? Did she tell Ruby about her hopes and dreams and how they are coming true? Maybe she told Ruby what she is thinking about when she stops and stares off into space. Is she solving the world’s problems and knows the cure for the diseases that plague mankind?

Only Ruby knows, and she isn’t talking either. It appears that we will never know what Little Peep thinks about. Perhaps Ruby is the one doing all of the talking and she has shared her dreams with Little Peep. Maybe Ruby has decided that the goat of her dreams will be named Keith or Ringo. They will settle down and raise kids. Twins would be nice. We will never know for sure what these two discuss, and you the reader are left to imagine your own scenario about this unlikely pair of friends.

  1. Sounds like she is living the life! I almost bought a milk goat this weekend, but in the end decided to wait a bit longer.
