Video Post, Night Penning
I find it very tough to pay attention to recording video while working the dogs at the same time, hence I don’t take many videos. Still I wanted to try getting a few of moving the flock.
A video of the entire process would be far too long and probably pretty boring so I've just included these few short clips.
I have three Kelpies with me on this evening; Cajun, Gibson and the youngster BlackJack is along for the ride and a bit of work if/when deemed appropriate. It’s his first time watching this much action and he’s the one doing all the barking in the background. I did allow him a bit of work once we had the sheep flocked up and settled (that video not shown, lol).
The background to these videos: We’ve already done the opening gather, meaning the dogs and I have traveled the pasture finding sheep, and moving each bunch in a general direction so they flock up.
First video: Cajun is bringing sheep up from the far side of a large bush. Gibson is in front, not doing much work in this case.
Second video: we’re about half way home, just a short clip of the dogs moving the group.
