I posted photos of Zaria's mioget, ewe lamb, "Snip" having her first halter lesson the other day. Today I'll feature Snip's sister, "Smudge":
Smudge proved to be every bit as 'atheletic' as her sister when I held the lead rope.
Look at all the pretty white UNDER Smudge's muzzle, jaw and neck!
I also suspect that, like her dam, Smudge will be Shaela.
Life is rough when you're a lamb!
A little moral support:
Sweet Sara thinks she might just be missing out on something.
Zaria moves in to comfort her distraught daughter:
I got a kick out of this though...
See the 'cookie'?
Chomp, chomp, chomp.
No more cookie!
I guess she's not THAT truamatized!
Since Smudge was either airborn or sprawled on her side, I decided to end the halter lesson for the day. I did, however, leave the halter on her for a while.
Smudge, rushed off to the the comfort and security of her mom and sister.
Maybe she'll get a little more used to the feeling of the halter and be a LITTLE more cooperative next time?
Before Smudge gets her next lesson, there's one more lamb that I need to get started. DAISY will be leaving with Smudge and Snip, next week...
