stockdogranch Posted July 5, 2012 Report Share Posted July 5, 2012 This is some video we took of Bukkle on the calves yesterday. The video is really poor quality, as it was taken with my little point & shoot. There is also no sound. I think if you click on the picture, it will take you to the vid: All we are doing at this point is working on her keeping the stock together and bringing them to me as we do walkabouts. There are also a few downs with little gathers. Her down is pretty solid at this point. As you can see, she is all about the heel bite . The way she is working is fairly typical of a young pup on calves--she looks pretty aggressive, I think, although she really is controlling them and not just harassing them. I will try to get some video of her on sheep here soon, to show the difference in the approach to the different stock. On sheep, she is pretty thoughtful with a really nice pace. She is almost ready to start doing some chores with the whole group of sheep (about 175 total, including some little lambs). I'll have her taking them to and from the night pen out to pasture daily. I had her gather the whole group (from a smallish area) the other day and used her to gate sort. She did a great job.
