  1. Dunno where you are in CA but around here the Coyotes get pretty rowdy at night. I thought the neighborhood dogs were having a block party or something 2 nights ago but on closer listening it wasn't dogs. Hope you get your lambs back safe.
  2. Hi Joan, Do you know of anyone who offers lessons on Sheep? Do you, or do you only train dogs for sale? I'm in 29 Palms. Also (hate to invite myself over) but I'd like to see just how you manage out here. I thought having sheep was not possible without nice pasture. Thanks

  4. Thanks Rebecca, I may be stuck in the Cal Desert right now but I WILL be in NC some day. I'll be calling on you for sheep and dog advise. I promise, I swear! It's my mantra! (sorry all the sand is making sheep raising seem more like a dream and less of a reality than it was just a month ago.)
  5. Hi, We've made the move from Ohio to the Southern California Desert. I'd like to continue what I've begun in Ohio. Any one here? or a recommendation? Thanks, Annette
  6. OK here I am again : ) Just thinking with a very open mind. I guess we (humans) used to have to take our stock to market on foot and through villages so farm dogs would get that experience of terrain versatility naturally-and at market is where farmers might trade sheep. Something we don't do anymore. Farmers of old probably selected breeding dogs that handled novel situations well. You'd hate for all hades to break loose in the middle of a town. I guess I'm talking from experiences (things I've seen) in the North of Spain where they still have to do things very archaeicly (is that even
  7. I'm just starting out so I'm about as bright a shade of green as you can get so I'll ask a question instead. Wasn't the sheep trial invented to compair and choose which farmer had the best sheepdog? I understand that dogs can be trained exclusively for the trial work (like any sport) but isn't that self defeating to the breed? Much like shutzhund trials were/are a method of testing or proving which working police/military/protection dog was the cream of the crop? I'm reading but will go back to lurking in this section (probably where I belong : ) ) Annette
