Then Saturday I had to work but I didn't buy anything. That night I tried to catch up on my sleep but man, once you get behind it is hard to get rested back up. Anyway, Yesterday I had a rodeo. The two horse trailer got two flat before we even left so Mom sent Dad and I to get them fixed but Dad thought he knew a better way that would save us time so he didn't get both fixed just one and then he used the spare. To bad on the way home the spare blew out. And since he didn't get the other tire fixed we had no spare with us. Mom on the other hand had two good tires at the house but with no jacks (Dad left the jacks in the back of the truck so they were with us) to get them off the other trailer, she couldn't bring them to us.
In the end we ended up borrowing a trailer and leaving ours on the side of the road over night. Then this morning Dad set out with all the tires ... got them fixed the way Mom said in the first place .... Then went to return the borrowed trailer and get ours home. While Dad was gone, Mom took me on a little trip to another farm. There I met this little spitfire of a gal that I am now in Love with. I don't know her name yet but I will. We got home and did a bit of cleaning before I went out to run some calves on Angel... She is really doing great. Today I found out that she really has the gitty up and go ... And that I was holding her back.
While I roped Mom made a few more jackets/fleece covers for the flock. In the beginning Mom used to put more work into the jackets she made but now she doesn't because she has found out that the sheep are kind of hard on them. She used to do elastic fronts and scooped necks like this
She says until she can find some material that will hold up to the sheeps wear and tear she will just keep fixing and mending the ones we have .... and keep making them out of what ever she finds at thrift stores, good will or garage sales.
My Dad continued when a friend of Dad's called and has two llamas that he has to have off his property by Friday because he sold his house. We loaded up and headed that way to go get them. We were just going to house them for him until we could take them to the sale but when we got there someone else said they wanted them so we didn't have to. If the other people don't come get them by Friday then we will have to go get them.
After all this running I had one more thing I had to go get. MERRY CHRISTMAS to me!!!!
