Tomorrow one lucky Ram gets to visit the girls for a while and they need to get ready. After spending the summer out making pasture land the girls are in desperate need for a trip to the beauty shop. Jeepers (left) and Kia don't look too excited.
Katydid knows that she will be more attractive once she has had her hooves trimmed and a bit of "knit" killer added to her wool. The girls would also get some wormer and a dose of pro-biotics.
The Commander would grab the girls one by one and bring them into a stall for their beauty "treatment". They all let me do their hooves with no issues. I checked all their eyelids for signs of worm induced anemia and they looked great - I gave them the wormer anyhow, just in case.
Once they were done I would put just a bit of grain in their bowl and the Commander would let them down to eat, as he held them in place I would add the "knit" killer to their wool. I didn't see any "knits" on anyone but it is probably better to be safe than sorry.
The only girl that gave us trouble was Kia, she seems to be a lot smarter than the rest of them. She never falls for the tricks we use to catch everyone, I think she has a strong Icelandic streak in her.
Kia seemed to want to let us know just who was boss. Temper, temper darling! (The guineas sat outside the sheep shed screaming the whole time we were in there, nice.)
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
