We brushed them, chased them, played hide'n'seek 'em.
They jumped, jostled, and jammed, but...
they would not,
go to bed!
It's the first time I've had to plead, then insist, then put them on leads and bring them to their yard, and finally shove them into their pen. They have never-ever resisted, ever. With bobcats and coyotes lurking, they cannot camp-out al fresco... so I hope they aren't entering a phase of disobedience or non-cooperation.
