Weekend Writing Warriors

It's Sunday again, and time for another round of Weekend Writing Warriors. I'm still working on Finding Rupert as my main WiP, and I'm more or less on target for the month. We've moved another day on from last week's eight, and Rupert is back at the sheep dipping again:

***


Brigit stood in the middle of a small group of sheep, penned off from the main flock by a pair of hurdles with the gap between them guarded by her Old Fred's collie dog. She had an upended ewe wedged between her legs, in a similar position to how she had restrained sheep for sheering, but this time seemed to be concentrating her attentions on the animal's hooves. As Rupert watched, she finished paring away with her knife, applied a tarlike substance to one hoof and then released the ewe.

"She's doing a good job there."

Rupert glanced around to see Old Fred standing next to him.

"Wanted to make an early start today to make up for yesterday," Fred continued. "There's been a lot of foot rot and abscesses with all this wet weather, and I don't see things improving any time soon."

"Does Brigit always see to the sheep's feet, then?"

To see what the others have been writing, go over there and give folks some comment-love.
