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…
