Split Progress

Here are some videos that were taken today.

Learning to wear:

One thing that I notice in particular about this video is that the sheep seem much more relaxed than they were last week when Split was working them.

Here we are, just working on changing direction. She seems more relaxed as well.

And we have mastered the call-off:

I’m going to need to be careful about calling her off as she’s drawn to me to begin with. That I was able to call her off after only two sessions is progress.

Fern worked very well today and I wish I had Wally take videos of her as well.  You will notice in the videos that we are working close to the road.  Several people have stopped to watch while we work.  They are all quite fascinated by what they see.

Until later …
