Today we sorted ram lambs from the flock and tagged all the wether lambs. This is probably the earliest we have tagged market lambs but we had to sort out ram lambs anyway, which meant taking a look at everybody, since we had our hands on them it made sense to put tags in at the same time. It was a long and full day of sheep work with Allen doing the brunt of the tagging work and me and the Kelpies gathering and moving the group and working the large alleyway to fill the race with sheep. I used Gibson, BJ and Cajun at various times and when it was time to move larger groups from the holding pen to the alleyway I used two dogs together. BJ hasn’t worked stock since having her pups.
I do not have any photos from our sheep full day but it looked similar to this Sunday wooly workload.
I do have another truck dog photo to share though. This time it’s BlackJack along for the morning ride.
