They came back!

The Border Collies came back today. They are going to come at least once a week. I told them they could come more if they want to. They did really good today.Had a little more confidence and they actually got the sheep to move for them. Poor Darla, my biggest ewe, got ran over by the rest of the sheep. She's ok though. I think she was embarrassed. She'll get over it.

Lige is in the front. He's 7 months old now. His mother is Bonnie. She did really good with the sheep. He's still way young. He's just at the right age to be introduced to sheep, not for training yet, but just to get to know them. He's got great form. He has the crouch and stare with his mom down pat. He's a good dog and so sweet. He comes right to me when they get here. I love them both. I hope Bonnie is carrying my new puppy!

I'm impressed! I wouldn't know what to do with a border collie. I'm not sure I'd know what to do with sheep! I've always just assumed it's too hot for fiber animals down here.

On that note, I'm glad Adelaide is doing better.

They are both such nice dogs. I love having them come visit me and the sheep. So fun to watch. Hopefully, as time goes on, they both will become more at ease with the sheep and better able to herd them.
