I do not have any dogged sheep so I trained 7 weaned ewe lambs to come when called and follow me. Now that Tilly is 1 year and over her first heat I tried her on this group. This is what resulted She went around and stayed opposite me and tried to maintain balance but her tail was up and she was whining off and on. Two lambs broke away she went after them sort of tried to head them off but was more of body check bounced in to there sides. Did bring them back was able to get her to lie down for a few seconds. Tried walking an lambs followed she trailed along but when we got to pond she left and went swimming When she got out she did not seem to know if she should come to me or balance tried to do both I walked back to pen she trailed sheep on balance. I have found a person with dogged sheep to help me but I don’t want to waste her time from what I am seeing I think she needs to mature a little longer could some one tell me if that is what they see too. On the bright side she did not blow through them or try to grip which she did at 6 months. So some progress Dan & Tilly
