Sheep and Dogs Two

Stopping in for a quick post. The photo is of Zeus, taken earlier in the winter with the eastern morning light just rising. Since we sorted groups of ewes for breeding he has set up shop with the non-breeding cull ewe/replacement ewe lamb group.

Meetings and a sheep industry symposium absorbed much of my time the last few days. The highlight of the event was listening to Louise Liebenberg talk about livestock guardian dogs and ranching with predators

Louise and I (and several other people equally fascinated with what she had to say) had an opportunity to meet one another and visit afterward. As a fellow enthusiast of working dogs this was a real treat and I thoroughly appreciated her take on raising/breeding dogs and her willingness to share. We have very similar ideas on working dogs, and Louise has a depth of knowledge that comes with many years of experience and with breeding her Sarplaninac’s. 

Predator Friendly Ranching is her blog and it is so, so worth checking out.
