|Sheep #1 and Sheep #2 Mom and Daughter|
So, we had to wrangle sheep. With lassos. On jagged, rocky terrain. Did I mention a Barbados ewe can jump six feet in the air? Really. She cleared my head. It was insane. I stood there holding a lasso in one hand and wondering just how in the world we were going to get them in the truck. They were fast. We contemplated returning when the man didn't have to work. Being my usual optimisitic self, I suggested we give it a few more tries...

The lambs were easier. I attempted to lasso one and ended up just grabbing her when she leaped in the air. Once I had a hold of her she went all docile and cute on me. Tricky beast! The fourth lamb was captured mid-air by the wife. Hubs was there to chase the sheep whichever way we needed them to go, and he did try his hand at roping, but in the end the women-folk were the real wranglers.
The children wrangled up the sheep just fine the following day after school, making us adults look a little silly.
