She runs around outside for sections of the morning chores with Gibson. So far she is allowed to help out with Meat Bird feeding and carrying hay to the horses and sheep, but she was a little intimidated to help with milking the goats. Yesterday she watched as the 160lb beasts jumped right past her up onto their stanchions and she yelped and ran behind a hay bale for safety from the giant horned monsters. I milked and she poked her head out now and again to watch. Sometimes we need to work up our courage.
She is doing so well and is such a joy. I can't say enough what a mood changer it is having such a darling pup here on the farm. And the timing of coming after lambs and kids are sold and in their new homes - perfect. She is learning all about chickens and geese and goats and sheep - but slowly and with Gibson as her mentor. Not a bad gig for a pup to land.
Oh! To whomever mailed the package of puppy treats and toys, thank you! What a fun surprise in the mail today. Friday loves them! Here she is with her treat ball, one paw on it and the other watching the Freedom Rangers. Farm girls play hard and work hard!
