Sheep Dogs

Tuesday, August 7, 2007

One day, after lunch, the rancher invited us to see the building where the sheep are sheared every year. After that, he showed us the dogs at work. We picked up two dogs at the kennel and they jumped in the back of the truck. We drove to a nearby fenced in grazing area. With one command, the dogs jumped out of the truck and raced off in different directions. Within minutes, the dogs returned with all of the sheep in tow. In the picture, one of the sheep dogs is lying low, watchfully minding over the sheep. These sheepdogs were extraordinary.
