No pictures today, I was going to take pics yesterday, forgot the camera inside then realized who wants to see pictures of sheep getting shot?
Well, not shot in the bang bang sense of the word, we gave CDT boosters yesterday and boy am I glad that's over!
I am a horrible procrastinator. I will sit and worry about how much work something is going to be, and of course spend more energy avoiding doing it than it would take to actually do it. So it always seems like such a huge accomplishment when something gets done on time. The girls were very cooperative, we set up a catch pen and my daughter walked into it rattling a grain bucket, they all marched in behind her like they knew what was coming, silly girls. We haven't trimmed feet yet, I was thinking we could do that as they come in to lamb. I think one of the girls is going to go early, this is her first year and she is already bagged nicely.
Another (Honey) has a problem; she has a lump in one udder roughly the size of a silver dollar. The same udder was huge last year, and so she more than likely had mastitis then. I am hoping against hope that she doesn't develop it again this year. She is one of my favorite ewes, one of the first to come here and one of the most correct.
The ewes have the go ahead now, jugs are ready, shots are administered; ready for lambing!
