Here Sheep
« on: May 14, 2017, 08:06:51 PM »
We have gates on every corner of our six sided fence (This pen is in an L shape) and let the sheep out into a different paddock every 5 or 6 days.  They love the new salad bar and come running as soon as I call out "Here Sheep".  I need to do a video but these two pictures shows their action in getting there.   There was only about 10 seconds between the two pictures.   :)

I had to giggle when I saw that they responded  by running to your call.

That is faster than my male BC responds.. He acts like he is being punished when it is time to come inside and walks very slowly to savor every second.

Your homestead is beautiful!

Thanks WD - it is still a work in progress but we love it.

Maggie - we originally wanted a couple of sheep to work our dogs with but since they come at my call it's easier to just do that.  We use the dogs for close up work but they don't get nearly as much time in the pen as they would like.
