Lone Star Shepherdess

Lone Star Shepherdess We started a sheep farm in Central Texas, to train Border Collies for sheep herding. But it has grown into so much more, we now have cows, pigs, ducks, chickens, and honey bees.

It has been quite a ride, I will keep sharing videos and updates.

Pray for rain!

I don’t know that there is anything more beautiful than the Texas sky. But seeing some much need rain would be a beautiful sight.

We need rain desperately. There are several wild fires in Texas and no green grass for our livestock.
By now the grass is usually green. You can see it is still dormant.

So please pray for rain, for the animals & the farmers who take care of them. Pray for all the families that have already lost so much, all the volunteers, and firefighters.

I am really enjoying the extra daylight, I may not feel this way the 5 AM but tonight it is nice!! 🤪

We had a productive weekend, finally got the master bedroom painted, new floors coming soon. 💥💥🎉

Worked on new things with Doc and he did good.

1.)We worked on longer outruns ✔️

2.) We put the sheep where Doc could not see them.

🔹First in the tree line 🌲🌲, He got them off the tree line at 200 plus yards and made a decent fetch. ✔️🎉🎉
🔹 Next we placed the sheep in the creek bed. He missed them the first time, which gave us an opportunity to work on fixing it! I took him off the field so he could not see where they were placed. We tried again, and with a redirect whistle he found them and brought them to me. And the 3rd time he did much better. There is always something to work on.
⛰We don’t have a lot of hills here in Central Texas, so we have to make do with what we have.
Mo and I had some fun doing young dog stuff, nothing to serious.

We also made a trip by Petsmart for some training opportunities with Mo. Buggies, wheelchairs 👩🏼‍🦽 lots of people & dogs and he handled it all like a champ!

As always Thank you Jack & Vivian for having us over. XOXO

Every once in a while, a ewe will give birth to a lamb and reject it. If the lamb is returned to the ewe, the mother may even kick the poor animal away. Once a ewe rejects one of her lambs, she will never change her mind.

These little lambs will hang their heads so low that it looks like something is wrong with its neck. Their spirit is broken. These lambs are called “bummer lambs.”

Unless the shepherd intervenes, that lamb will die, rejected and alone. So, do you know what the shepherd does? He takes that rejected little one into his home, hand-feeds it and keeps it warm by the fire. He will wrap it up with blankets and hold it to his chest so the little lamb can hear his heartbeat.

Once the lamb is strong enough, the shepherd will place it back in the field with the rest of the flock. But that sheep never forgets how the shepherd cared for him when his mother rejected him.
When the shepherd calls for the flock, guess who runs to him first? That is right, the bummer sheep. He knows his voice intimately. It is not that the bummer lamb is loved more, it just knows intimately the one who loves it.

I laughed more than I wanted to cry. 😜
All in all we had a great day!

Here’s to fresh sheep and good friends. It was a long day but it ended on a good note. It was so great to see everyone, I loved catching up with our friends I haven’t seen in way too long!

I actullay enjoyed the challenge of the Rambouillet sheep, it was fun to mix it up a little.

The folks at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo were amazing and ever so helpful! Some of the nicest folks we have ever worked with. Thank you to all the volunteers that helped today!

Since we finished so late we probably won’t know scores until tomorrow.

“Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress. Working together is success” ~ Henry Ford.

Unity doesn’t magically happen; it takes work. It is messy sometimes it’s uncomfortable and it happens gradually when we clear away the bad, then the good can grow.

I love competing in dog sports with my dogs. But it takes time to develop into a team, but once you have it, it is beautiful.

I have noticed that people just expect their dogs to know what is expected. You have to teach them and your self how to communicate in a way that they understand. They are all different what works for one dog may not work for another.
It took me a long time to understand what Doc needed from me, being a team is a commitment and we are finally there.

We had a great weekend! Awesome weather, dogs, and friends.

Good morning! Everyone keeps telling me “a watched pot never boils.” I don’t know her exact breeding day, but she has to be close. I am so excited. It will be our first calf born on our farm!

If you want 2022 to be your year:
Don't sit on the couch and wait for it.
Go out. Make a change. Smile more.
Be excited. Do new things.
Throw away what you've been cluttering.
Unfollow negative people on social media.
Go to bed early. Wake up early. Be fierce.
Don't gossip. Show more gratitude.
Do things that challenge you.
Be brave

JUST A DOG

“From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog," or "that's a lot of money for just a dog."
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."
Some of my proudest moments have come about with “just a dog." Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog," but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by “just a dog," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."

“Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure and unbridled joy.
"Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person.

Because of "just a dog," I will rise early, take long rides and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog," but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a woman." So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog," just smile--because they "just don't understand." -

I was thinking I might enter him in a duck herding trial. We need a bigger area but this will do for now.
Pray for rain!
