Zen Sheep Move

Moving the flock to a different pasture.  There is hay feed awaiting them just over the hill.  As it turned out they hardly touched it.  The desire to move and nibble their way around a new space was too strong to be swayed by hay feed or deterred by a light skiff of snow.  They found their way to a native prairie hillside and have been grazing there for the last two days.

BJ is the kelpie moving the flock with me on this morning.  In the first photo there is a guardian pup on the upper left side.  Two more dogs are over the hill.  Oakley is in the rear.  I'm not sure where the other two are at the moment of the photo.  This is the finish of the morning chores and it was sooo peaceful; one of those times of feeling connected to dogs and sheep and time and place.

  1. Your dogs are so lucky to have real jobs. Mine have to be content to run around the property and try to dig out Antelope Squirrel, (similar to chipmunks). I saw a LGD in the natural food pet store the other day, and thought of you.

    1. I hope they think so as well. :-) Contentment can take many forms, I imagine your dogs are very lucky too.
