Lowri - This weekend I had a light bulb moment. I was helping TM with the ducks. She was trimming wing feathers so they wouldn't fly away while we were herding. I was helping her by fetching the ducks and holding them in the corner. It was work. I suddenly realized that I have a JOB! Herding isn't just fun and games, it is about taking care of the stock too. Holy cow! I am not sure I am cut out for this responsibility! I had just a glimpse of why Kearney was always serious about herding. He was TM's go-to dog. Any real work was his. Now I am the go-to dog. I have a job - wow!
So today, we were back to the fun and games part of herding. That is so much more fun! Maybe I need to stick with being a party girl. Yeah, that sounds better.
