Halter Training

Between weeding the garden and splitting and stacking wood for next winter, the kids have found a new and amusing pastime that also keeps the lambs busy!  After dinner the kids grab some halter/leads and run down to catch a lamb and lead it around (their secret “weapon” is a stash of sheep feed in their pocket!)  I think this will certainly pay off in the future, hopefully making the sheep that much easier to handle when they’re adults!

By the way – the kids made this halter-lead at the CT Blue Ribbon Sheep Conference with the 4H kids!
