    Got an extra couple hours today - my detection student called and was too sore after PT to work. "No Problem" I said. I find it's always easier to be that way then otherwise, and today I could use the extra time. Didn't get out to graze the sheep with Obi (was before I knew of the cancellation)...

    Awe, Thank you ❤️ . Yeah - we each do what is right for us. For me the dogs got me into the sheep. It's what they DO. I was raised with a mindset if a dog is a _____ and they were bred to _________ then they should. Grew up with Vizslas and my parents hunted, the dogs never missed or lost a...

    Hello

    I'd keep them separated full time. Like @Baymule I do not tolerate those that are mean. That equates in my mind to dangerous - which will either end in vet bills or personal injury or liability.

    A pretty regular day today - sans taking the sheep out to graze, a late fog bank rolled in so I took care of house stuff - almost ready to leave now - all "experiments" taken care of :) , still need to finish up my normal "book" of instructions. I should just know that feed and pick up is...

    Ohhh you are in so much trouble now! :lol: -- when I had my knee done/repaired I told the PT guy that I "walked and ran backwards, forwards and sideways when training dogs to herd" --- little did I know the fate I sealed for myself with that simple statement :lol:. I loved going to PT but it...

    Coffee anyone ?

    Coffee at hand, it's going to be a slow start to today - fog is rolling in. Guess I'll start with the inside things to get done.

    Coffee anyone ?

    Of course. Been there done that. We all have evac lists - what to load first (most important). Sometimes there is time and sometimes there is not. I have friends who have lost everything, burn marks on their vehicles "badges" to getting out. The rural areas don't get as much advance notice at...

    Coffee anyone ?

    CA here as well. Fires are more and more a fact of life here -- between hugging trees and fire-bugs there has been an increase in fires in the last 35 yrs. Yes, the insurance is through the roof. I can also attest to the change in building codes - having just built 2018-2019 we have no...

    This morning just Obi and I took the sheep out. Yesterday the Barb was a bit sketchy at times during the move to the graze and back. I don't think Ree could have handled the situation as well as Obi. She's more push and zoom with not much finesse. Obi has the push and zoom but also just plain...

    Yup, borax straight out of the box. I saw on some homestead site they made ant traps out of borax water and sugar - put it in a container for ants they had in their garden and it worked. I figured with the fire ants I'd give it go - but not use the water and sugar out on the ranch road figuring...

    Pretty easy and relaxed day around here. Took the sheep out with Obi and grazed different areas for about an hour or so. Got to watch them eat, watch Obi work seamlessly with any commands, listen to the birds sing, watched the hawk vs crow airshow. I didn't make it out to the areas where the...

    Oops - missed yesterday. Hmmm A lot of regular stuff got done, but not much in the house. Barn chores always seem to be 'more fun'. I got out on the UTV with the fire ant killer yesterday. I really need to be able to get down the road to the meadow with sheep and dog. Of course the biggest fire...
