It's THAT Time of Year Again...

I have four babies leaving at the end of this month and it's time to get them halter trained for their new owners. I've taken lots of pictures of lambs during halter lessons but I've got to tell you: little BLUFF COUNTRY FLOWER wins the prize for "Most photogenic"! What a HOOT!

When I first put the halter on the lambs, I like to let them just wander around for awhile with it on. This gives them a chance to get used to the feel and to experience an occasional 'tug' on the lead rope. Flower had other ideas.

After a while, she did settle down so I decided that it was time for a little 'hands on' training.

Suffice it to say: Flower was not exactly a motivated student!

There were legs flying every which way!!

Finally, Mom "Rosie" moved in to offer her frustrated daughter some reassurance...

And I decided to quite while we were "ahead"!

Actually, I did halter lessons with Sandman, Sleeping Beauty, Sunshine and Debutante & Bling as well. I hadn't planned on doing Debutante and Bling but they were right in there wanting their fair share of attention so I figured: what the heck???

Back out to do more halter lessons while it's NOT raining in the Bluff Country...


  1. Beautiful pictures, even if she was throwing a hissy fit. Too funny. :-) How long are your lessons? I need to start working with some of mine and always wonder what is long enough or to long.

  2. Thank you for the birthday greetings! The training photo op was way too funny! I should try to halter train my goats but I'm pressed for time as is. I can't believe it's already time for the babies to go!!!!! Ahhhhhh.....I'll miss them too.

  3. omg TOO FUNNY! What an adorable little brat!

  4. What a little madam! Beautiful though. I'm so hoping for patterned lambs next year. I'm convinced that Rosie will throw a beautiful grey yuglet with Barney!
    I have to do some work with my lot soon or we'll never get to any shows.
