Fun, Fun, Fun

Kearney - TM took us all out to the big field.  There were six sheep (and NO cows!).  TM saw the brindle bullet streaking toward the sheep as they disappeared over the hill.  She yelled at Chase to come back.  From nearby, he turned to look at her.  It was Lowri in hot pursuit <G>  TM didn't yell any more as she knew the sheep would be back pretty quick.  Sure enough, here they came.  Lowri was still in hot pursuit.

TM took Chase and me up the hill to some shade and tied us up (she didn't want to go up and down the hill any more than she had too).  We were tied so we couldn't get together, nor could we get hung up in the leashes.  She had Lowri work the sheep some more.

There were a couple more fast trips around the field.  It is about three or four acres and has some steep hills.  Lowri never quit, but her tongue was hanging out pretty far.  TM told her to stop and Lowri did - immediately.  She asked Lowri to make some wide outruns and Lowri did.  I think TM brought us out there on purpose to teach Lowri some lessons in stock handling.

Chase got to work in the big field too.  TM was working him on widening out his outrun when he gets behind the sheep.  He did a pretty good job.

I got to work a bit with the lambs.  TM and PR had finished putting in the electric fence at the new field this morning.  She said they made it hot.  It didn't look too bad to me, but I stayed away from it.  I made the lambs move out into the new field.  This was before we went and worked on the hill.  I guess I did a good enough job, as TM didn't let me work the sheep in the big field.

Lowri - After we came down from the big field, TM took my Daddy out to work the lambs for just a bit.  They had come back into their old field and TM wanted to put them in the new field again, so they would know that they could go back and forth.  He did that very well.  Then TM went to where the electricity is.  She did a little cleaning up and was just starting back to the barn, when my Daddy YELLED.  He went zipping past TM on the way to the van.  He wouldn't even look back when TM called.  Apparently, he got too close to the new fence while he was exploring.  He told us NOT to go near the new fence - it BITES!!!
