A few more herding pictures

Gus herding Dad and the sheep.. he he
Gus is actually in the right place Dad is not. Gus is keeping the sheep from bolting it is called covering the head.
Louie helping Mom keep them in line...
Louie likes to dive into the middle of the sheep and make them scatter. The stick is used to block him. Don't worry Mom does not hit him..
Callie, I got the ones back here..
This is actually what Callie is suppose to be doing. It is called the fetch, bringing the sheep to Mom. Callie's problem is that she thinks they need to move fast. Mom hasn't quite figured out a sign for slow down, but we are working on that..

Why did we just know that Callie would be doing things just right? And Mom, are you not worried that Louis might steal that stick?

Gee... we wish there were still some kind of animal around here that we could herd! Grandma OC has told us about her and her parents herding the goats, but now there aren't any around here. You guys do an awesome job! The Country Corgi Pups
