TAC2 Posted November 11, 2008 Report Share Posted November 11, 2008 My sheep deserve to have their sheepiness license revoked! The world's most stupid sheep I need those flighty Cheviot sheep! We brought Lena out to work two of our sheep for the first time today. I was worried they would panic and run when Lena went for the lift, but nooooo, not my dummies. She did a nice outrun, came around behind them and the sheep...they turned around to amble over and see who the newcomer was! The look on Lena's face was priceless. Er, um...why are your sheep coming toward me and not you??? She was definitely a little rattled by their curiosity. Anyway, she got them moving with a little wearing and then stopped. I tried walk up, flanks in both directions, then woke up to the fact she was holding them against the renegade sheep's fence. Good girl, stupid me. With a little help from hubby we shooed them off the fence and Lena went to get them again. These sheep are so dumb, all they wanted to do was graze and watch the hubby who was in the stall keeping the LGD out of trouble and taking pictures. She flanked around, got closer and closer and still...no movement. Once again we shooed them off and were able to work up and down the pasture with the sheep between me and Lena --- driving and gathering side to side instead of her driving the sheep behind me. Anytime one tried to break in a different direction, Lena was right there to put it back. We finished off with her putting them in a stall (with a little assistance from grain rattled in bowl) since they just won't run from the dog if she's behind them...stupid sheep. Well done Lena. ~ Tru Picture: Outrun up to the sheep, holding sheep to fence, oblivious sheep, come by, still oblivious, closer, stupid sheep Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
