This is a slice of my morning ritual. Most times I head out with the adult dogs for a long bike ride or walk. I return, drop off the old timers (the two border collies who are not in this photo), add the pups and head out again for a shorter walk that the pups can manage at this age.
It is kind of as peaceful as it looks; I rarely miss a morning walk.
Sometimes I mix it up and take the pups with everyone right away. That will happen more as the pups grow up and can keep up. We don’t always walk the same route. Sometimes we go down the road, sometimes we head out on a pasture trail. The route I take depends on where the flock is. We go where the sheep are not.
In the evening I’ll gather the training sheep and sort them to work/train a couple dogs. Then do a second short walk with everyone. This is us hanging out in the yard afterward.
