Farm Motto: Please visit our teaching website for all things 'Hair sheep' Wall 2 Wall Sheep Ranch is committed to providing quality Registered Full-blood [Pure] White Dorpers and quality commercial hair sheep. We strive for complete shedding traits, good mothering and milk production, lambing ease, parasite resistance, feet that require minimum to no care, and optimal growth in lambs.
We are a working sheep ranch and require the best in ranch hand help, so we employ BORDER COLLIES to work our stock. Our Border Collies are first and foremost working stock dogs, but the fact that they are also great companions and an outlet to a wonderful hobby in trialing is a real bonus. www. wall2wallsheep. com for more pictures.
Pete & I would like to thank you in advance for visiting us online and sincerely hope that you enjoy your visit with us! Lorna : )

THE DEAD COW LECTURE....Pay Attention!!!!!!
This is the best example for paying attention that I have ever heard.
First-year students at the Purdue Vet School were attending their first anatomy class with a real dead cow. They all gathered around the surgery table with the body covered with a white sheet. The professor started the class by telling them, "In Veterinary medicine it is necessary to have two important qualities as a doctor. The first is that you not be disgusted by anything involving the animal's body." For an example, the professor pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger in the butt of the cow, withdrew it, and stuck his finger in his mouth. "Go ahead and do the same thing," he told his students. The students freaked out, hesitated for several minutes, but eventually took turns sticking a finger in the butt of the dead cow and sucking on it. When everyone finished, the Professor looked at them and said,
"The second most important quality is observation. I stuck in my middle finger and sucked on my index finger. Now learn to pay attention. Life's tough but it's even tougher if you're stupid."

  SO the latest in the cat saga....
SO the latest in the cat saga..... well the young calico cat continued to steal the kittens... the first one somehow was killed in some scuffle.... so only 5 were left... .I spent the next day collecting the kittens .....after Pete had found the missing one from day 1.... the morning of day 2 when it fell out of the rafters of the barn.... he was coming from the barn after milking... I was waiting for the milk to separate...and he is driving his quad toward the house and clutching his chest... I thought he was having a heart attack or something! then he goes over and puts the kitten back... a few minutes later the next one is missing.... so he goes and gets the ladder and gets that one back ... meanwhile she is stealing another one....

So I find the door to the big plastic dog kennel and grab the cat and put her in there so that I can keep the kittens with the Mom that actually has milk... .she got away from me the next day but I went to the "cat house" and picked her out from the bunch and walked her back to the barn and put her back in the kennel.... this morning she let me hold her while I cleaned the kennel out and put in fresh straw for her and new food & water... and put her back in.... really dumb cat! LOL

Meanwhile the other mother Calico had 3 kittens in the "dog house"! the safest place to have kittens is surrounded by dogs! LOL she is in a locked big kennel and then in a plastic "house" so she is happy.... and safe as nothing can get near her... LOL funny cat! This morning she came out and went for the walk with us & puppies... then after I was done brushing the dogs, she quitely went back to her kittens.... but not before she had had her piece of chocolate....LOL : )
