The Demo at BaaMoo Farm

The demo was a great success!  The sheep were tough, but workable.  As you can see from the photos below, Gel was a great hit and in his glory: I have a few videos which I’ll upload later.  We got hired to come back Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of next week and several days […]

Training Notes

Just got in and I have a good idea of what I need to work on the next time I go out to train.  Train?  What am I doing training?  I guess because I need to bring one (or both) of these young dogs up to speed so I can use them if for whatever […]

Wheeling and Dealing

Yes, yesterday was a very good day.  I did a bit of wheeling and dealing with my Directv account and then with AT&T and ended up with better packages for less money.  That’s always a good thing. I got a letter from the local law firm telling me that they decided to hire a legal […]

Success!

I managed to accomplish all that I set out to do!  I did forget to bring a tie out for Liath, but when I brought the ATV down to block the alleyway, I fed her in that corner and while she was eating, I went up with Gel and brought the sheep out.  Then we […]

Looking forward to the day!

Yes, I’m looking forward to the sun rising, the temperatures warming up and getting out with the dogs and yes, training!  Not so sure why all of a sudden I’m interested in working with my dogs, but I am and it’s a good thing. The goals today are as follows: Fern: Continue to work on […]

Three wet Border Collies

It’s cool and raining, again … and I’m stuck in the house with three wet Border Collies.  All three are in their crates.  I’m sure Gel and Fern are not happy with that arrangement, but for now, that’s where they are staying.  I’ll wait for the rain to let up a bit and then take […]

Look what we brought home from the farmer’s market!

A locally grown pin-head! Yep, and she seems to be interested in working sheep: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCLLzIXBhIk&w=425&h=344] [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2A4E5UDZ7k&w=425&h=344] [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VxKxSfOuUA&w=425&h=344] [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaFwZNm8bcQ&w=425&h=344] In all seriousness though, yes, she’s got a narrow jaw and head and you should see her teeth!  She’s not even two and they are a mess!  Her breath could kill dragons. While Wally and I were […]

Bloody Goats!

I looked out this morning and saw the whole crew of them working like hell to get through the cages that I put around the blueberry plants.  The had succeeded with knocking one of the cages over and chewed most of the leaves off that plant.  I just got back in from putting chicken wire […]

Errands

I’ve spent way too much time doing errands over the past two days.  Now I feel like I’m behind on everything. My neighbor gave me five blueberry bushes which I got in the ground this afternoon.  I put cages around them to keep the goats, rabbits and chickens from disturbing them.  Hopefully we’ll have some […]

A bad dream!

I dreamed last night that I moved.  It was to a beautiful house and half the rent I’m paying now.  The house was right by the ocean, but with little yard space.  I brought the cats and Gel and Fern.  I couldn’t let the cats out and they were pissed! I thought it was a […]
