Busy day today. I had to work, so got there at crack of dawn, and then off to the farm, as I had a guy coming to look at some sheep. When I got there, I checked preggers and her friends, and separated preggers and a friend out, and worked Joe on the rest. He was a good boy. Grass getting mighty high; needs to be mowed- brother said he would... After I finished working Joe I pulled thistles out. Did not have shovel, only a pitchfork which made it harder. Got them all together and then they man showed up.
Had Dan gather the sheep for me, and the guy and I stood at the fence with sheep held to us by Dan. He did very well. Sheep all in a nice tight group. After we checked them out, we then went to the other field and I had Dan gather them into the paddock. The guy right away noticed my littlest lamb- how pretty he says. Yeah, she's nice I do like her a lot, and she's staying..
So, we made a deal and I am supposed to hear back from him next week. He wants to start his own flock. Nice man.
After he left I walked Dan and Joe and then checked hill sheep again. Ram has loose droppings, which I think is from the grass, but to be sure I wormed him. I also fly sprayed everyone, as they are really irritated by the biting flies. Tons of them after a rain. I feel bad for them. Gave both fields of sheep some minerals, cleaned out the barn, and then headed to parents' for a visit.
Now home after a nice early dinner and just about ready for a nap!
Will read my new Murder She Wrote mystery and shut my eyes for a bit...
