Sif Update and Herding

Lowri - Sif survived the night out with the cows.  TM went out this morning and found her huddled under a tree where she could watch the stock.  Apparently, she got stepped on.  She is limping on the near rear.  She puts weight on it and TM couldn't feel anything bad.  There is no swelling anywhere.  TM got her and Thor back into the barn.  She actually succeeded in locking Thor in this time. 

When she went back down there a couple of hours later, Thor was still locked in the barn.  He was very stressed, so TM let him out.  Sif stayed in the barn.  She figured out the dog feeder, she has water and she is resting on the hay.  TM thinks that is a great place for her while her leg recovers.

For those who might not be up on their Norwegian lore, Sif is Thor's wife.  While our Sif will never be Thor's wife (he is neutered), she will be his companion.   TM says pictures will be forthcoming in the next couple of days.

After taking care of Sif, TM took me herding.  I got to herd the older lambs.  Jack was VERY bad.  TM let me make him behave.  I really liked that <G>  The other four lambs were pretty wild and ran a lot.  Sometimes Jack went with them, sometimes he didn't.  I made him <VBG>  Once all the lambs were working well, TM said "That'll do."  I ran over and jumped in the water trough.  TM toweled me off and we went back to the house.
