Today after the farm chores were done, the border collies and kelpie worked we let the "other" dogs each have a short turn on the sheep. Last year I was too afraid to do anything like that myself. But now I know at least the basics enough to keep things safe for the dog, and for the sheep. Each dog got a few minutes, and boy did they have fun! I wish there was video. It was freaking hilarious.
|the shorties waited patiently in the yard most of the day...|
Vito did the best! He gave the sheep space (for the most part), found balance, and switched sides fairly easily. He had a fantastic time and I even got a few downs out of him. I might putter the odd time with him- he really enjoyed himself. Despite his short stature he had no trouble keeping up, or covering...
Boone is a dork. I have no idea really what he was doing. It took longer to catch him after than it did to work him. He had fun though... well, I think he did.
|ummm, not quite sure what happened here. lol|
Pixel refused. ;)
Cindy's dog Sunar did pretty great too-similar to Wicca though- as soon as the rules were imposed she was done with that. Corgis hate rules.
So now I have a WHOLE HOUSE of tired dogs. A day at the farm, some sheep fun, and now a nice relaxing sunday evening....
