Want to entertain a kid? Give her a refrigerator box.

A cat? Give him a paper grocery bag.

A lamb? A black, feed tub.

It takes lambs about two days to figure out that the feed tub is prime real estate.

When the ewes step away from the hay, the lambs jump in. The oldest lamb, the white single ram, grabs a spot first.

A game of musical tub ensues, with the other lambs jumping in and out, until finally, a few more lambs settle in.

When the lambs finally go outside (I'm sure our 8 inches of snow will melt soon), they will repeat this game with the big hay feeder, until, sometime this summer, when they weigh 70 pounds, they realize Rub-A-Dub-Dub is a kids' game.
