This is the definition of a bad day

Ever feel like you just can't get things right?  Like every thing you do today is ineffective and painful?  Well that is certainly the day our ram was having when we found him struggling in the back corner of the pasture.  His horns were lodged tightly around the t post,  his head entangled in the fence. I had to cut the fence wire to free him.

Oddly,  just as we do when in similar situations,  he continually tried to free himself by pulling back with all his strength.  It was only when he relaxed,  quit fighting,  and let me move him forward that he found true freedom. Just as we often fight that which would free is,  his struggles only made his situation worse.  Perhaps there is a lesson in here for all of us?

In the end he was fine,  no harm except to his pride.
