Random catching up

Sorry all it has been more than a week since my last blog. I have been enjoying my two weeks off until my next trial. I have been waging a war with thistles. They seem to be growing incredibly fast this year. I bought my self a new toy to help win the war.

This little red sports car  pulls behind the ranger and does an awesome job.  Cuts right through the thickest patch of thistles.
Yesterday Kyle and I bought some more sheep. 13 Dorper ewe lambs and 2 ram lambs. My plan is to build a stronger flock and weed out the riff raff. 

Two ram lambs plus a runt ram lamb(who is going to lose his man hood today)
Risk and Strider are also losing their manhood today

I have been working my dogs as much as I can. We have three trials in a row coming up. In the last couple of days Rob has been looking spectacular. Craig has also decided he would like to be a sheep dog. He has move out of the training field and out to the big field for more training. He is not a natural out runner but with Isla being his mother that is fine with me. Meg is doing good as well. We are thinking of changing here name. Whenever I am giving Craig shit for something Meg thinks I am talking to her.
Finally I wanted to post this you tube. A friend posted it on Facebook and it is too funny. Enjoy
