This morning we loaded a few dogs in the car and headed up I5 to visit our good friend, Lora. It was time for Rose to visit some other sheep and I was looking for some guidance on the best way to start her. I also think it is good for my son to work with someone other than his mom with his dog 🙂 It helps that he adores Lora!
and the beauty…
that is herding!
It was so funny listening to my son while Lora was working with Rose – ‘Lora is the best trainer’ and ‘Look at how fabulous Rose is’ and ‘We should come here every week’ and ‘I can’t believe how good she is doing’. He cracks me up!
After Rose, Gypsy had a go.
Gypsy is a daughter of Nell, my second favorite border collie, right behind my Katie girl.
Here is Nell telling the Cheviots to ‘move’ 🙂
Before we left, Nell brought the sheep up to the barn so I could see the new ram – Sam. He is mostly Blueface and is from Tammy’s farm.
In fact, we visited him when he was a baby. He has grown up a lot!
A good morning with good friends!
