Mountain Goats and Bighorn Sheep


Recommended Posts

May be of interest to some. The Department of Interior has been testing ways to implement stockdogs in their management programs for several decades. In 1987, I was honored to be part of their bison project using Australian Shepherds. Here a Border Collie is being used to manage mountain goats and bighorn sheep.

No reason why you can't. I was hired by the Department of Interior for their wild bison project:

I can totally relate to that. I was doing contract work during that season of my life, so it worked out well for me. I was blessed to have family minding the home fires.
