Sigil glared at Jiggy as the younger ramling turned his back on him without a single sign of respect or compliance. An aggressive bleat building in his throat while he charged to cut Jiggy off, and begin staring him down. "Did I say you could leave yet baby?! How about a couple tears from the big baby?" he said in a confident tone as his head lowered in a charging head-but position. A couple of the other lambs in the flock casually watching from their mother's sides, the ewes only viewing it as an expression of ramhood and felt no reason interfering yet in the lambs affairs while they got their own lambs ready for bed; a few of the younger ewes innocently eyeing Seamar.
Mercy quietly watched from beside her mother and Seamar, wishing that Sigil would grow up a bit and hoped that he would not do anything too bad to Jiggy since he was new to this flock. "Mommy... Why do all the rams always have to act so silly...?" she asked innocently, while she blinked her large eyes up to her mother. Silently hoping Seamar would answer her question however since she was too shy to ask him directly for an answer, and he was the only adult ram she had seen for as long as she could remember. That and she felt her mother was interested in him so wanted to get to know him a bit better without having to start the conversation with him directly since she did not know whether his personality was nicer than a certain other silly ramling in the flock.

Jiggy could clearly see the other ram was considerably bigger than he was. Fight him? He felt a strong urge to, but he knew better. He'd only get beat up, maybe badly. He turned away without another word, thinking to go back to one of his parents...but he didn't want to have to. He laid back his ears and tried to find a new area where this ramling wouldn't bother him. If only he knew more people here. But then, maybe it was time for him to make an effort to get to know them. *Well anyone but Sigil...*
