  1. Thanks Mark and Kim and Sue. ---Sally
  2. If any of you have used Safe-guard to worm sheep, can you tell me which product (drench or paste) and what dosage you've used? Thanks in advance. ---Sally
  3. We have a couple of shetlands and a couple of shetland crosses for dog training, with lovely fleeces for hand spinning. The purebred shetlands are a lot of fun to work with an advanced dog, but I don't think that they are especially suitable for a beginning dog or a beginning handler -- they are very fast, very flighty, and they are very apt to split off from the group at high speeds given the slightest provocation. Our crosses (shetland x cheviots) are more reasonable than our purebred shetlands -- they are flockier and they are steadier in nature. If you do decide on purebred shetland sheep, try to avoid buying sheep that have been raised as show sheep -- not an easy thing to do with a breed like shetlands. Show sheep are typically handled way too much to be of any use for dog training.
  4. I *really* like Derek Scrimgeour's book. I think it is packed with useful training and trialing insights, presented in a very easy-to-follow and well-organized progression. Derek shares some of his own training and trialing experiences along the way, and how they've shaped his perspective. He also talks about the various dogs, both past and present, that have been particularly significant, and how the sort of dog he looks for has evolved over the years. It all makes for a very good read, not to mention an excellent resource.
