It was indeed!! I had almost given up, and then the herd came strolling over the rocks!! He was actually not happy about the dog, we have a 120# Fila Brasileiro that was just hanging out and watching. But with the babies there, he was not happy at all!!!! Made my husband take him away and stick him back in the Jeep so he would not be attacked!!
