  1. I have been sheltering in place since 2 weeks before they told us to. Sugarfoot still goes out 3 times a week with her walker - to open space where there's few people to encounter. Otherwise, it's a quiet, in-the-apartment life. Not much different for an agoraphobic. No one in my building sick so far. Everybody stay safe!
  2. We’ll visit a mother/daughter operation in Lovell raising crossed Dorper/ Katahdin hair sheep, both relatively new breeds, but gaining in popularity in Wyoming. We’ll also visit the homestead of the Spear S Ranch in Red Canyon where they work to restore the oldest domestic breed of sheep in the Americas, the Navajo-Churro. Originally broadcast on 5/10/19.
  3. The Gampr is a landrace breed of livestock guardian native to Armenia. The dogs for centuries has protected the Armenian flocks from predators, most notably wolves. Brad Anderson a breed conservationist has been working with the breed and shares his insight into the Gampr.
  4. Slides from Dan Macon's presentation at the 2018 West Central States Wool Growers Conference in Casper, WY. This presentation covers observations and research rearing livestock guardian dog behavior, selection, and problem solving.

Plus, they had an interesting take on the trial dog. People are all too ready to dismiss the stockperson as an ignorant hick. Forward thinkers are beginning to understand that turning everyone into vegans is not the path to good nutrition or creating enough quality calories to nourish a growing population. Transhumance is a really good way to raise livestock, and we should be working to help livestock producers incorporate
  6. "Rambro has finally succumbed to old age, he will be sadly missed." Infamous on the Internet, Angry Ram was quite a character.
  7. The look like British Whites to me. Another breed, White Parks, have horns.
  8. Thanks, GentleLake. I don't go near Facebook, so that was very helpful. The dog seemed a good "header" dog, but looked almost pit-bull-ish to me. I'd never heard of cream Kelpies either - just black and "red" ones.
  9. I would like to know what kind of dog this is. Not identified by breed or type on the You Tube page.
  10. This is old - 2015 - but I hadn't seen it, so I thought others might not have.
