Trinity was one of the worst of the head bobbers and he quickly figured out that it did him no good ~ AND that if he stood, nicely, I'd walk over and scratch him and give him an animal cracker! ;-)
Bravo coached Hershey on the fine art of standing still...
I walked up and down the line of ram lambs ~ making sure nobody got tangled and giving pets and reassurance ~ and kept a close eye on them as they adjusted to standing tied.
Rhinestone Cowboy found the whole experience exhausting! Using the fence posts as 'hitching posts' worked great!
As soon as Rocky figured out there were cookies involved, he decided that this was a pretty cool game! Notice the black lamb walking, free, down the line of tied boys? That's Diamond. I didn't have enough halters! Diamond very much enjoyed walking from lamb to lamb and reassuring them that everything would be fine...
Nestle didn't think it was real fair that Diamond wasn't tied up.
After about 15 minutes of playing this game, Diamond and I performed the final inspection: All the boys were standing quite nicely! A job well done.
