    G'day,here is a "shaky"(it's damm hard to film and direct the dog at the same time) at times short clip of"Max" working a group of ewes and their lambs.IMO , this is the most challenging work for a dog to undertake,this clip was the first time he has had to handle this class of stock at close quarters.

    The great part for me was that he managed the little lamb until it decided to go back to the group.

    It would not let me load it here ,so here is the linkhttps://www.facebook.com/pages/SHEEP-Farmer/489540237795665

    You could tell that Max just "knew" that lamb was going to bolt again. Seems like there is always one in the flock.
