I just saw a kid (baby goat) charging at an older sibling of hers now. The older sibling, who still cannot believe her mama weaned her and now has two other babies to cater to, keeps following her and the new kids around.
So, this kid got irritated and cocked back her head to give her big sister a warning. You need to see the look she gave her. That one got a bit scared and staggered back a little. Then she continued following. Baby sister wouldn't have that nonsense again. Why should she be sharing their mama with them, this mama that is exclusively theirs? She charged at her and started fighting her away.
"Leave our mama alone." She bleated.
"No, she is still my mama, and mind you, I am not your mate." Big sister bleated as she fought back. But it was obvious she was somehow afraid of little sister. She would fight and then move back while her sister kept charging.
I was amused and smiled. I wondered how that kid could successfully intimidate her senior. Was she not even afraid of the difference in size? Then it occurred to me, confidence. It was that same confidence (spurred by a working relationship with God, this time around) that made tiny David face ogre Goliath and kill him. This same confidence was what made a cock, yes, a cock, fight off a dog in one viral video I saw sometimes. Confidence!
