Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. The weather still continues to be warm. In the afternoon the temperature often reaches 22 C (71F). Not bad for halfway through autumn. Now as you all know We live on a lifestyle block in the sunny Mangamahu Valley. Mummy and daddy run a couple of cows and a few sheep. Today, neighbour Paul had to sort out some of his sheep and return our stud ram called Romeo. So, mummy and daddy said they’d help him. For some reason Me, Nellie and Itai were left at home. Something about being a nuisances and distractions.
Once the sheep were in our woolshed then the fun begun. The sheep had to be separated in the race, sort of long corridor with a gate at the end. When the sheep gets to the gate, it is either opened or kept shut, depending on where the sheep needs to go. Unfortunately, daddy was operating the gate and he didn’t prove to be quick enough to sort the sheep into the right pens. Mummy wasn’t quick enough to get any photos. (She was laughing so much) So, daddy and the neighbour had to resort to a bit of sheep wrestling to sort the sheep.
Needless to say after many naughty words being spoken and the air turning blue, the sheep were sorted and Romeo was returned home.
Hopefully, Romeo will be a good ram and in the springtime there will be lots of little lambies in the paddocks.
Love Nellie, Jasper and Itai, the three bestest maremmas in all the land. Here is a clip mummy found on a place called Youtube about real dogs moving sheep. Enjoy.
