The ranchsitter changes her shoes

 Lucy: Can't make this too easy for the rookie. I'll make her catch me.

Lucy's idea of making things difficult is about five steps.  

 Lucy: At least she's not wearing purple shoes today.

 Ethel's got the hang of the "find them/bring them back to the barn" morning routine.
I'm confident she'll do just fine without me around to supervise.

 Twelve: Speed it up, please.We're all waiting.

Ethel has a gentle touch and has already earned the full cooperation of Lucy, George and Alan
when it comes time for faces to be washed, fly repellent to be applied, 
and grazing muzzles to be put on.

 George: Plus, she knows where to deposit the treats.


  1. good job Etherl. love the boots

  2. She's going to be great!

  3. and I have no doubt that JCC and Smooch are being spoiled also.

  4. You can relax and have a great visit with your mom.

  5. You are lucky to have a dedicated ranch sitter!

  6. There is NO easy time of year to leave your animals.

  7. The boots are more ranch friendly. I bet you can get them in purple too, just in case ya feel the need. Here's to Ethel's week going uneventful where the herd is concerned and your week being filled with excitement.

  8. Have fun. Both of you.

  9. Ethel is perfectly capable of taking charge of 7MSN while you're visiting your Mom. I hope all is smooth sailing for both of you and look forward to the updates soon. Oma Linda

  10. Thinking good thoughts for both of you. <3
    Love your boots, Ethel!
