Monday At the Farm

Lowri - I got to go herding again today.  TM spent time with me on my outruns.  I don't like going clear out around which makes the lift and fetch problematic.  I can control their heads, but I can't do a straight fetch to TM.  That makes her cranky.  It is hard to balance my need for control against her wanting me to listen. 

Today, I helped TM move one of the ewes out to the big field with our ram and the cows.  Her babies are old enough to wean.  I did a really good job helping TM.  We got her separated out with very little fuss.  Her babies are calling out to her.  It is kind of a sad sound.  Fortunately, they will forget about her in a couple of days.  TM makes sure there is plenty of grain for the lambs.  They are growing like weeds!

I am going to post some of my pictures from yesterday, because MC takes great pictures.   TM really likes that I work like a cutting horse when I am holding the stock.  She just wishes I would work a little farther off the sheep.

Here I am bringing the sheep to TM
The lambs are very wild.  I am having a BLAST!
They are all supposed to stay together.  I am making that happen.
