Thank you for posting  Ben. That is a brave little puppy !  I see she has a good role model and bet she will be a great herder.   :)

Thanks Ben -  those first encounters can be comical.

I know of one trainer that was supposedly expert that let a 10 week old pup in with a bunch of ewes that had lambs on their side.  I'm not sure what he was expecting but those ewes head butted that pup so hard that he had a fear of sheep from that point on.  :)

Border Collies are hard to beat!
