Lowri - I had the best time today! TM called the sheep to come down for grain. They wouldn't come. They knew she had more on her mind than just feeding them. I got to go out into the big field to fetch them in. I did a nice, wide outrun. The sheep decided to go to TM. That was a good choice!
Then I got to herd the sheep in the arena. I did a great job there too. I put them in a corner and held them there. TM trimmed the coat off one of the ewes. She will be much cooler without all that coat. I made her stand still while TM worked on her. I made the other four sheep stand there too. Afterwards, I got to move the sheep around the field. After they tried escaping several times, they gave that up too.
After I got to go to water and cool off, TM let me work the last set of sheep. I LOVE making them mind. It is so much fun. If you put just a little too much pressure on the lambs, they try to escape. Then you get to cover them and make them stop. It is great!
