A Little Evening Walk with the Sheep…

Victoria and Madeline walking their 4-H fair lambs every evening…

Most of the time they have a little shadow…

Up and down the big hill, it helps exercise the lambs and builds their muscles…it helps exercise the girls too!  ;0)

Then they practice setting them up…

And getting them to brace…IMG_1974

Hard to believe we have fair lambs already.   I don’t even want to think forward to fair which means fall is just right around the corner but I’m sure it will be here sooner than I am ready for it…

    Sister and I spent a lot of time doing the same as your girls, walking lambs and setting them up. I hope your family enjoys this great project. Are you going to any progress or jackpot shows this summer?

  5. Thanks, they really enjoy it. The girls and the boys will be going to a lamb camp and a couple jackpot shows this summer. Always lots of fun!

    Erin, Every time I visit here I am in AWE of the beauty you are surrounded by! I keep telling my husband I want to visit where you live. It seems like the most peaceful and beautiful place the Lord created (ok, I’m being a little melodramatic here but you know what I mean). Thank you for sharing your family and farm!
