Kearney - We had a lazy Sunday. We avoided the heat by staying indoors in the air conditioning. Although, TM and I walked down to the barn this morning and let the lambs out to graze again. Then we didn't do much for the rest of the day while TM finished canning the green beans. PR slept late and took a long nap. TM says that is so his back can heal.
Lowri - We finally went out to herd at about 7:30. My Daddy went first. He worked the big mamas in the middle field. He did not do a very good job. TM would tell him "away". He would take a "bye". TM worked hard to find places to praise him. Finally, he caught on and started doing a better job.
Kearney - I got to work the lambs again so the big mamas could rest. I am having so much fun. TM had me hold the lambs so she could check their eyes. I made sure that the lambs stayed put! Then TM had me hold them near their feedpan while she went to the barn and got their feed. I love my job!
Lowri - I worked last. I worked out in the same field my Daddy did. The big mamas are not as sedate when I am in the field. I had to chase one of them clear down the field THREE times! My tongue was sure hanging out by then. But I did convince her to stay with TM. We finished up at the barn. TM had me hold them. I wasn't sure what she wanted me to do, but I chased the ewes back to her when they tried to leave. TM was pretty happy with me. That is a good thing, because I got in trouble over the carpet again today. I know I should leave it alone, but it is fun! And I was bored! TM spent the rest of the day making sure I had other things to do.
Kearney - I almost forgot!!! My sister, Treasure, got her International Championship today. She went to four shows in two days in Atlanta, GA. The judges LOVED her. She got a V1 rating from all four of them. Then she went on and placed in three of the four groups. She also placed in all four Bred-by groups. She came home with two Group 1's, four Group 2's and one Group 3. We are VERY proud of her!
Lowri - She got MORE Letters!!!
