Lowri - We picked up my Daddy last night on our way to Papa Ron's. Once we got there, I got to spend the evening on TM's lap. It is my favorite place. I stretch out and throw my head over her leg. She wiggles around quite a bit, but generally makes a good pillow.
We got to go herding today. My Daddy got to go first. TM had him sort the lambs and then work the course with a fairly light set. He did a very good job! TM had him do the cross-drive a couple of times and he did it well. He gets to try again tomorrow.
Then I got to go. I drove the big mamas around the round pen a couple of times. Then, TM let me take the whole flock out into the large field. I made them stay with TM. She said I was excellent! I had such a good time. I can't wait until tomorrow when I get to go again.
Kearney said he didn't want to talk. When we all came up to the house, I heard TM tell PR that Kearney had worked like Richard the Chicken-hearted. She said that a week before the next trials and he is acting afraid of the sheep. NOT good. She wasn't very happy with him. She finished with having him work in the round pen with the whole flock. He got to push them around. That made him feel a lot better.
