A right of passage...
It occurred to me, the other day, that many of my lambs will be leaving for their new homes soon and I haven't even begun halter lessons! With a three day reprieve from the heat and humidity, there's no more time for excuses.
Zaria's lovely daughter, "Snip" volunteered to go first:
Perhaps "volunteered" isn't the right word?
I don't understand why they always get so upset!
Snip appears to be ambidextrous!
She can throw herself to the ground on either side!
Perhaps if she hides her face, I'll go away?!
I recognize that reaction ~ I do it all the time!
DREAM to the rescue!
Maybe if I bite this rope...
Stay here, while I go talk to Mom...
"I'm thinkin' that you best untie this lamb!"
And don't make me have to tell you TWICE!
The halter is off. Time for a little neck scritchin'...
