    There is something so wonderful about watching dogs do what they were bred to do! A working dog is truly the best partner a herdsman/rancher/shepherd can have.

    Thanks for sharing!

    G'day at some point I must try and get some video of my dogs working our sheep both in the paddock and the yards.

    I would put the value of my dogs above 3 strong sons in regard to working around the farm...T.O.R.

    Evidently, my dogs were bred specifically to chase the UPS truck, the Nat'l Forest folks, and eat a lot....

    Somebody on Facebook asked people to post about their favorite animal on their farm. Being that I had just chased down some goats AGAIN, I told them that my favorite animal is the trained Border Collie that I dream about owning. I know that I could never train one but I sure wish that one would fall out of the sky and into my barn.

    That dog is amazing!!! Thanks for posting this, Old Ram. I would have loved to have heard audio, with this, to hear what commands his handler was giving.

    I'm with SBC. Would love to see video of you working your dogs!
