As the sheep slowly enter their pen, Mr. Willard shares his surprise at his daughter’s abilities.
He says, ‘She puts them in the cage. They sure go. It functions! Get the gate. Everything in.’

Mr. Willard later told Storyful, “She absolutely loves animals and being outdoors.
‘We have been very lucky with our way of life, especially this past year! Definitely not a kid indoors. ‘
