Yesterday we went to work sheep again, all the girls needed to have their bellies and nether regions sheared in preparation for lambing in a few weeks, they also got vaccinated and had their hooves trimmed. We did between 25-30 sheep yesterday, it took around 3 hours. This time I did bring a working camera so I have some pictures, but Logan and I helped a lot more this time than last so I had less time for taking pictures. We had a great time and are both feeling more comfortable handling sheep. We think we want smaller sheep, these guys were huge!
I thought Logan was great yesterday, he helped the whole time and didn't get bored. He helped hold sheep, he passed supplies to everyone, he helped open and close the door as we finished with a sheep and released it, he basically did everything he could to help with no complaints. At one point he was carrying a bucket of feed and was being chased by the sheep, he was trying to put it away so they couldn't eat it all and he tripped and spilled a bunch of the feed. In the past, this would have led to a huge meltdown on his part but he just stood up, picked up what feed he could and proceeded to put the bucket away. After we finished with the sheep we went inside to eat lunch and he did great eating food he wasn't familiar with and participating in the conversation with 4 women. I was just so impressed with him!
Wait, that isn't a sheep?!
Ah, here's a sheep.
We worked the sheep in the greenhouse which was a great choice since it was cold and snowing!
