This fellow is investigative and busy, a familiar sight to all who have lived with puppies. Lambing is taking place and as the rancher and I talk, he goes between the paddock with the ewes, and the barn where there are new lambs in the jug pens. It takes him half a minute to figure out how to get through the rungs on the gate, but he persists until he gets it, which is often the nature of livestock guardian dogs.
The adult dogs are all resting in the paddock with the ewes. I suppose they have seen enough lambs to know what’s up, but for a young pup, curiosity is abundant.
