Kearney - Woo-hoo! We are back at Papa Ron's. He and TM were working on the barn. They are going to make a better floor to put the hay on. TM also worked in her garden. She planted sweet potatoes and put down a weed barrier. I think she has a lot more of that to put in. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.
Lowri - We got to go herding today! I had a great time. Kearney got to go first.
Kearney - Yes, I got to go first. I took the big mamas around the field through an advanced course. Then TM worked with me on getting braver. I held the mamas in a corner and walked in on them. She made sure that none of them tried to get me. It was my job to move them around and push on them. I did a good job. TM was happy with me.
Lowri - Then it was my turn. TM and I went out into the field to where the sheep were. I did a pretty outrun and brought the sheep over to TM. It was kind of weird. TM wanted me to just stand there and do nothing. I did that for a little bit, and then I tried to move the sheep for TM. She wasn't happy with me. She wanted me to just stand there. We worked on that for a while, then I got to finally help her move the sheep. We went back and forth with standing and moving and then went down to a corner. I got to hold the sheep right there. TM said "hold them". Kearney has told me how to do it. TM had some ideas too. We worked on that. I think my job was to keep the sheep standing right there in one spot. TM would stand with the sheep and then she would walk away. I kept trying to bring the sheep with TM, but she didn't want that. I finally just kept the sheep in the corner and TM said "that'll do." She was very happy with me. I had fun.
