I got to Herd!

Lowri - I got to herd, I got to herd!!!  TM brought the big mamas into the round pen and let me chase them!  I had soooooo much fun!  I ran through the water and everything!  I even got hosed off after like the big dogs. 

Kearney - TM said Lowri did very well.  I didn't have to help at all.  TM brought her in on lead and made her sit at the gates.  Lowri had to sit before TM let her start herding.  The big mamas were very good.  They ran in circles and stayed near TM.  Lowri chased them around and around.  TM used a plastic rake to block Lowri and encourage her to move out farther from the sheep.  When TM blocked Lowri and sent her the other way, Lowri did it without hesitation.  I was very proud of my little sister.

I got to work the lambs in the field.  TM had me move them along the fence both ways.  I am supposed to keep it nice and quiet.  I have to work way away from the lambs so they don't go crazy.  It is more fun to chase them, but TM told me several times that I was awesome.  That makes me want to work harder.  TM says I am learning to herd for Advanced classes.  She was very happy with my work.

  1. Whoo-hoo, Lowri! What a GREAT little herding puppy you are! Awesome work on your brother's behalf, too! Moving stock QUIETLY isn't as much fun, but will get you high scores in the trials, Kearney. It will all be worth it. In the meantime, GOOOO, Lowri!
