I’m currently teaching Pip to walk on a harness.
It’s all going to plan, but she hates it.
Whenever Little Pip was around 8 weeks old, I tried to introduce her to Sheila. You know the one – has the massive ears.
But at the time, little Little Pip was terrified of Sheila, and avoided her at all costs. Yesterday, I tried again.
And everything went according to plan! Hooray! There was a little bit of uncertainty on Pip’s side, but she soon calmed down enough to have a good time!
Sheila was just happy to be out and about.
Whenever we all arrived back in the yard, I had a quick photo session on the doorstep!
Sheila must be the smallest Border Collie in history. Ben’s bigger than her, and even Little (Giant) Pip is catching up. Sheila has to stand on a step to make herself look bigger.
What a cute pair!
Sheila’s a very good girl.
Why the long face, Pip?
After every single shot, Sheila jumped off the steps, got her treat and went off to do something more interesting. Not like Pip, who just stayed on the step, looking at me.
Meanwhile, in the sheep houses…
Two more new arrivals! Still a little wobbly on their feet.
We have quite a few lambs now, some inside:
And some outside:
And here are the first set of twins we had this year, who I introduced you to in this post.
They’re really big now.
Your food must be much nicer when your feet are in it.
