Status update – still no lambs…
So, I’ll write a post about the best helpers ever!
Kate and my son make an awesome team!
Most of the time I can just open a gate or two and have the sheep go where I want them.
Moving through a pasture of lush green grass, can be a little difficult though.
Time to call in the first part of the team.
I love this dog! She has so much power, but knows when to use it and she is so gentle with my very pregnant ewes.
She has tremendous work ethic and wouldn’t leave a sheep behind, but I have to remind her to get the llama 🙂 Here she is after I told her to ‘look back’.
She obediently heads back to get him, unfortunately he doesn’t have a lot of respect for her. I know from experience that he will finally move for her, but sometimes it is better to call for back-up…
there, that got him moving!
Kate’s got his back just in case he needs it.
I would be remiss to not mention Magoo in my list of helpers. He often makes catching the sheep a little more difficult than it should be, but I am very grateful that his watchful gaze is always watching over the flock.
Wonderful helpers 🙂
Teamwork exemplified! You are so blessed Shannon, to be able to raise your son amidst the fields and flocks and he is a natural. Love the pictures. Your dogs, sheep and llama are all matching, love it.
Your sheep look great all shorn… And I’m totally jealous of all that grass! 😀
AND CUTE HELPERS. Why does Theron always look so Angelic? My boys don’t look like that.
He puts on a good face for the camera 😉
