That was exciting. BJ wasn't too sure what to do at first. He got down in his play bow and wanted the sheep to play with him. Hmmmmm. . . the sheep where not impressed. But as we kept walking about the pasture and following the sheep, he finally figured out (and so did the sheep) that he really did understand that they weren't there to play with. It will be a lot of fun to get his natural instincts brought back up to the surface where they belong. He is still doing GREAT in agility. His favorite piece of equipment is the A-Frame. He literally flys over it without touching the top. It's amazing.
Belle did great on the sheep too. We just walked and walked around the pasture following the sheep from corner to corner. There were times that she would take off running after the sheep, get just so close, stop and bark at the sheep, then come running back to me as if to say "Ok, now what do I do with them???." She has a LOT of natural ability and will make a good stock dog. I actually think I might be able to do some trialing with her in a couple of years. That would be something.
Here are some pictures of the day from the sheep farm.
