I am making serious headway on the manure pile. I bet maybe three more days of doing this and I am done (see, it WAS big). I was a machine yesterday. Busy day at work, then up to the farm. First thing was feed sheep, walk dogs and then I cleared out the Jeep and went and got more hay; hopefully last hay I will need. When I got back I cleaned out one of the water tubs, refilled it and then put hay away. Oh, and before I left to get hay I worked both dogs. The ram lamb was a bit lame on his front leg so I caught him and checked, and trimmed his foot a little, but it wasn't really needing it much. He seemed better after walking around.. Anyway, after hay unloaded, I moved more manure and then worked the dogs again. THAT is when Joe was a star. WOW. WOW. WOW. Totally working and listening. I see that his issues are him being young and energetic, not um, less biddable than I thought- glad I saw that. After I worked Joe, we then took our last walk. I had Dan walk behind me, and Joe just trotted right ahead of me. I have to keep Dan behind me or he's nuts trying to herd Joe.
When I got home I hit the wall of sorts, and was asleep very early. It was a good productive day!
