Natural Shampoo

When a guest came, I noticed the taxi man didn’t close the gates. Well, I procrastinated on closing it, and then, of course, the yard was full of two bulls! I stayed back, as they trampled the grass, and ate a lot. But then, when they trampled a banana tree, I needed them out of there. Tiko was barking, but staying back, so that’s good. He kept looking at me to see if it was okay to herd them. He’s so dang good at that! I would say, “Okay, Tiko, just stay back from their head and their feet,” which he did! He is so dang smart. Anyway, that didn’t work, but finally the owner came and was seriously mad at them. He carried a long stick, stayed to the left and behind them, and yelled, urging them towards the gate. When they wanted to veer left out of the gate, he yelled and held up his stick to ward them away, and they did well. They turned right. So that’s how you do it!
