For the first time this year... Terzo asked for his own lamb. When the older boys started to make their choices for their 4-H projects, he quietly approached me and asked if he could finally have his own, instead of sharing one of his brothers. He had a little help choosing her, but she is all his.
Meet Kanga Junior. She was the ewe from this set of triplets.
"Kanga" because it is "K" year, and we were reading "Winnie the Pooh" and "The House at Pooh Corner" on and off this spring. "Junior" because she is little. According to him, when she grows up, she will be just plain Kanga.
He is in the midst of training a lamb for the first time, and he is doing a pretty darn good job, if a proud mother may say so herself.
He is training her to walk with him....
and turn with him...
and get used to the sound of his voice encouraging her to keep up with him.
And so it begins.
