Sheep Herding Saturday!

Callie, let me at them Mom. I can do this...
Louie, I got this one Dad. You wait there and I will bring her to you...
Gus, Ok Mr. Ram you do not scare me one bit...
We had a very productive day herding today. Callie is learning to slow down a bit while working her out runs. She does have a tendency to stick to Mom like glue but zooms after the sheep when she thinks the time is right.
Louie did really good on his out run. Very slow and calm. He didn't scatter the sheep to much today... He enjoyed it every minute of this. He seemed to be smiling the entire time.
Gus, had a slight altercation with the Ram as you can see. Of course the Blueman came out ahead. Gus did awesome today. He looked like a real cattle dog bringing the sheep back when instructed to look back. He even managed to pen them out in the middle of the arena. We are so proud of all of them..

Looks like all three of them had a grand time. Nothing like a Heeler working.

This is great!! Nice work pals! You always remind us of our pal in New Zealand, Boomerang. Wondering what Boom is up to! What does a 'slight altercation' with the ram mean? Gus? Just a wonderin'.
Always nice to visit you!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
