Hey guys it's been nice being back. I wish I had things to update, but aside from picking up the new hobby of creative writing and jumping my boy Ticket, not much has been happening. I will share some pictures though for you guys to enjoy.

My big boy Echo looking all fit like a Suffolk in Kansas City (He was a giant teddy bear for me, sadly he just didn't grow leg hair very well).

Not sure why the picture loaded sideways, but a couple times I caught Thunder acting like a dog.

Hope you guys like these. I can share more sheep pictures if you guys would like.

Hey guys, not really an update, but I'll throw in some pictures to thank you guys for coming here to read this.
Just wanted to throw it out here because this is the first place I experimented with just writing what was on my mind, but I have really gotten into writing as a hobby, and to those of you who read my early stuff, thank you very much for reading it, my current writing has gotten much better and I really love using voice. Anyways, thank you to everyone who used to put up with my writing.
Here are some pictures as promised

Another one of the hundred pictures of Thunder and Echo when we were at Kansas City. Gosh I miss seeing these cute faces.

Just a fun afternoon flooding the wash rack while I washed legs

I don't have a picture that does them justice, but these three ladies made my dreams come true last summer.

I think it’s awesome that your writing started with what was on your mind and now writing is a hobby for you. Keep writing!

Hey guys, I think I will be using this journal for you guys to follow along with my 4H animals (mostly the lambs) this year.
Lightning and Flash came home last Friday. I probably have over a hundred pictures of them so far, and I honestly see nothing wrong with it. One thing they would like you to know is that they were both (especially Flash) trying to be nice to their human, and allow her to pet their precious faces. However she tried to start putting that dang halter on Flash yesterday, and successfully put it on both of them today. According to them, we are not on speaking terms. Will update later if/when things change.

You know that feeling you get when you woke up from a really good nap?! Thats how Flash feels.

I see nothing wrong with a hundred pictures. More is always better, right? They are cute, look like winners to me. How long does it take to halter train a lamb? I'm not real impressed with so called sheep halters, just a loop with the lead rope run through a loop. I bought one, it falls off, maybe not a good quality. I guess I am used to buckle on type halters, like for horses. They don't fall off!

Thank you! You can never have too many pictures for sure. Last year I halter broke in about a week with a Weaver nylon halter, probably similar to what you have used, and I think I like it especially because it is gentle on their faces. One thing to look at if you are wanting to try again, Weaver has a nylon one that has a chain for the lead, and I have never had issues keeping it on lambs. We did attach dog leashes to lead when walking lambs separately, simply to save our hands. They definitely are different from the horse halters though.
