Duck Herding

Lowri - We got to herd ducks at TM's - FINALLY!  After TM finished with work, she took Kearney out.

Kearney - I got to go fetch the babies to TM.  They were very cute.  They were all sitting in the wading pool.   I went around behind them and stopped and waited for them to get out.  I was very patient, not only then but when I needed to bring them out the gate.  These are pretty young babies.  They are just now getting old enough to work.  They are only about five weeks old.  I waited on them to figure out how to get out the gate.  Then I drove them around the yard.  I am getting good at waiting on them and not rushing.  TM was very pleased with my work.

Lowri - Then I got to work them.  It was weird.   TM just walked around - generally so I would have to swing wide on a "bye" to hold them near TM.  She didn't give me commands, just watched to see what I would do.  I wasn't sure about that at all.  I tried to go to TM, but she didn't want that.  I think TM figured out that I can drive just fine when she is to my left, but I am not very good at it if she is on my right.  She says she is going to do this exercise until I figure out how to work ducks this way.  I don't's weird.

When we were done with that, I got to hold the ducks.  That is my favorite!  It is Kear's too.  When TM told me to "hold 'em", Kear exploded barking.  He wanted to do it.  TM just ignored him.  I got to hold the ducks while TM opened the gate.  If the ducks moved, I just twitched my head and they froze.  What fun <G>


  1. Oooh, holding 'em does sound like fun, Low! Kear sounds like he's really figured out ducks! Good job both of you!

  2. I'm so pleased you are getting quack sense, Lowri. It will serve you well later. Kearney, you already know everything. You need to be more supportive of little Lowri while she is learning.
