Where is my hug?

October 28, 2012

Robin had Farm Day yesterday. That’s when a bunch of her friends come here and they all do stuff with the sheep. Shearing Day is coming up so she wanted to get things organized. Yesterday they started by cleaning the barn.

These ladies worked in the area where the sheep are and some others cleaned Stephanie’s stall and the people part of the barn.

I thought Robin should tell them they were talking more than they were working, but I guess they got the job done.

While some people were cleaning the barn, Linda, who has a broken foot, used the hose to clean all the dust and cobwebs off of all the stuff that Robin uses in the barn.

Dona and Sheri worked in the ram pen while the rams weren’t in there.

 Everything gets dumped on the manure pile.

The ladies cleaned the skirting table and then they made the mistake of giving the hose to Shelby. I like Shelby–you’ll see why later.

 So finally I got to help with something. The ladies wanted to look at the sheep. I brought this group in. This is what Robin calls the “non-breeding” group, but there are some marks on some of these. Now I remember. Robin was going to put all the ewes back together today and use only one ram after that. Yesterday a bad ram got in with these ewes and a couple of them were bred when they aren’t supposed to be.

Once all the sheep were in the ladies started looking at them. All the Farm Club people get to pick a fleece so they said they were “shopping”.

One of the ladies named Dona said that it was Hug a Sheep Day. Whatever…

Then Robin said something about Hug a Donkey…


…Shelby was the only one who thought about HUGGING THE DOG. And I think it was an afterthought.
