Here Kelly has strategically positioned herself, in the ewe barn, and is checking her paper work to verify the scrapie numbers on each of the adult ewes' ear tags.
Although it may LOOK like she's snuggling with Zanex, in this picture, Kelly is actually checking Zanex's ear tag to verify it's number. In the meantime, Zanex IS munching on cookies in Kelly's other hand! ;-)

Since she admitted to me that she is a regular reader of this blog, I couldn't resist teasing Kelly a little bit...Here she is holding Dream (while I , of course, am trimming her hooves and giving her a CDT booster)
