Herding

Today I went to an acquaintance's home in Norfolk after work. She has sheep and pens. I watched her work her dog and worked Bug. It was interesting. At first he was a bit stressed out about the new environment - sniffing a lot. Once I got him hooked on the sheep he worked really nicely for me.

I was very curious to see what he would be like someplace other than Diane's. Diane didn't think he would have an issue and she was right.

The bad news is the sheep knocked me over and out of alignment. Gah!

Herding can be dangerous. Sheep can step on you and knock you down. At least agility equipment doesnt move. Lol Im glad Bug did well. Diana

I hope you are OK! That is why I am scared of sheep. *sigh* Glad Bug did well - he will be a super herding dog.

I am okay - just a little sore and out of alignment. These sheep were VERY fetch-y and they wanted to be on top of me! Bug gave me Eeyore ears when he saw me on the ground. "What's wrong mum!?"

Diana, I told my chiropractor Cheryl - I think the herding community could be a whole new market for you!

Bad sheep! Good biz for chiropractor though, Hope you are not too sore today.
Stewie and I are going to Wrentham this weekend and next, are you going to either trial?

Maybe we will see you,
Nancy and Stewie
