Walking the Lambs

6x8 Oil on Canvas
by
Cheri Wollenberg
My two previous blog posts have featured lambs that our grandchildren are training for a Sheep Show this spring.  As I am posting this little painting the children are working hard walking their animals to improve their muscles and stature. After they walk and excercise them they will practice setting them up.  Setting them up involves bracing them so that their muscles will be displayed for the judge to feel.  This is not as easy as one would think.  Bracing animals that weigh more than you do is not the easiest thing to do.  Today they went to a sheep show to observe how other people do it....many of them older children and much larger and stronger than our little kids who are only 7 and 9 years old.  I admire their diligence and determination to be good showman.  I also simply love them. This painting is available as a custom painting by me on Etsy.
