The Promotion

Our goat herder in training at only four weeks old.
This weekend Massey got promoted. From Head of Ranch Security to Chief Goat Herder. Well, technically she's still responsible for both jobs.

When Brady needed her most, she came through. The two of them spent an hour chasing goats around the pasture. Massey would cut them off. Brady would throw his loop. And miss. And then they would start all over.

Finally, out of sheer exhaustion, the goats surrendered. So Brady didn't have to rely on his roping skills to seal the deal. But, he did have to rely on Massey, and I have to say, we were both pleasantly surprised with her goat herding skills.

Her reward? A dip in the pond and the trimmings from our brisket. And, a long, long nap. I even let her snore.

Can you say spoiled?
