Fable--A tale of a tail!

The intrepid Fable heard that there was livestock nearby--so she decided to follow this track.

She ran into her Mom, who told her if she hurried, she might see SHEEP!

So Fable ran and ran and ran!

Whew!  Fable needed a quick lie down before continuing on her quest.

Mom, were they THIS way???

Wait, I think I smell something here!

Is that the sheepies up ahead?

It IS the sheepies!  I'm going to watch Mom tell the young ram lambs where to go!

The Sensational Six at 3 Weeks!

Please enjoy these candids of the litter I've decided to nickname the "Sensational Six" from our girl, Lowri (lots of herding titles, grand champion, etc.) by the equally sensational Dickens (GCH. CH. Twinroc Santa Paws). 

This is Callie!

Meet Devon!

These are (L-R) Ethan, Bailey and Gabby.

This is Fiona!

 

I call this one, "She's SQUISHING ME!"

A Herding We Did Go!

It was a beautiful summer day (for a change).  Agility practice at 10:00 a.m. for Baby Dinah was AWESOME!  We learned a lowered A-frame, worked on channel weaves, directed jumping, table, tunnel and started learning the tire jump!  Dinah is FANTASTIC!  She's going to be faster than a speeding bullet!

After a couple hour nap, it was time to drive up to Ron and Susan's farm for herding practice!  Dinah needed some encouragement, but comported herself well again today.  Enjoy the photos!

Things were going well at this point!

Oops, this one is trying to get away!  Dinah is on top of it!

Holding everyone still--exhibiting fine control!

Then we're moving them around the field again.

Another escapee!  Dinah says, "Get back with the others you silly sheepie!"

Ooop, the grass was wet and the sheepie fell down.  Notice Dinah shut her eyes!  Evidently couldn't bear to look!

Whew, the ewe was back on her feet in a flash.  (Dinah still has her eyes shut!)

That'll do!  Good job, Dinah!

Treasure's new folks!

Meet LD and Jane.  They came and met Ms. Treasure yesterday and swooped her off to their home in middle Tennessee.  Jane reports that they stopped on the way home to introduce Treasure to various family members, who all thought that Treasure was, indeed, a treasure!



 
See Treasure checking out her new RV!  Oh, yeah, she's gonna ride in STYLE!

Ms. Treasure Found Her Forever Home

I put it out to the Universe that Ms. Treasure was seeking a forever home.  She is funny and sweet natured.  She has earned herding titles but doesn't really have a lot of herding instinct so has gone as far there as she can.  I have just started agility training with her and she appears to enjoy that in case someone wants to try agility.  Mostly she likes to be a homebody.  If you are interested in learning more about Ms. Treasure, please contact me.  Here are some photos.






 
I am happy to report that Ms. Treasure has gone to her forever home with LD and Jane in Manchester, Tennessee.  Jane wrote:
 
Treasure is HOME. She got to visit with her great, great gram. great
Aunt & Uncle and they were quite impressed with this little girl. She is
great traveler. Stopped at Love's truck stop and got our business done
and one other stop before we stopped at LD's mom's place. Thank
you so much for everything. Jane

Dinah's Escape Hatch

So, as those who follow me on FB know, Dinah is my escape artiste' extraordinare!  To foil her, I have had to TRIPLE fence areas in the back yard to keep her from reaching the sheepies (to which she is addicted).  I haven't found her latest escape from the side yard (which I am not picturing here as yet), but last week bought another 6 x 10 x 10 foot chain link run to put around her favorite escape route under the back deck into the large dog/sheep pasture, which as it turns out, was a VERY GOOD idea!  I heard barking where it shouldn't be late yesterday and looked out the kitchen window to see what I THOUGHT was the dogs outside the deck and into the new last line of defence--NAW, couldn't be!  I went out and looked and couldn't see where they had penetrated so thought I was hallucinating.  This morning, however, I heard barking again where it shouldn't be--WHAT!  I'll be hornswaggled!  That wretched beast had herself a lovely escape hatch--you'll see what she's done in the photo evidence below!  Yes, it's only 9 a.m. and I have thrown on jeans over my PJs and gone out to repair fence yet again!

Look below and to right--yup, she's pulled away the cinder block, the decorative edging, busted through the wood on the other side to create a lovely little escape hatch.
 
This is the corner of the chainlink freestanding run she pulled away from the moorings to escape from months ago.
 

I just call this "evidence"!
