Got out and worked all three dogs twice. Not sure who’s brain is more fried, mine or the dogs. I have found that the shedding practice, for some reason, is improving Gel’s driving. Maybe it’s just a fluke.
Split is going to learn her flanks quicker than Fern. She was flanking excessively while working the whole flock so Gel and I sorted off a group of four lambs and one of my dog-broke Dorpers and I used that group with Split and that corrected the problem. I hate drilling flanks, but it seems like I’m going to have to do that with Fern.
I was glad that I despite the awful weather, I bundled up and got out to work the dogs as I feel so much better now. The fresh air does wonders. Three tired Border Collies is even better.
Until later …
