Default Herding Instinct Tests for the herders

Recon and Frag got to go meet some sheep today and I signed away my trust in them to not kill them.

Here are the videos. Frag did a LOT better than I expected and will be going back for training for sure. Recon was very unsure, stressed, and hesitant when they were looking at him, but showed a lot of instinct and promise when they were moving away. Lots of calming signals you can see in his (sniffing around and poop eating). Frag had me a little worried that he was going to take down a sheep in the first few seconds, but quickly fell into line and worked great for the trainer; she loved him. Recon will be going back for another instinct test when Frag goes back for training in July and the trainer is sure he will be fine then and can move forward with training. Just not quite how I expected it to go; they're always surprising us I guess!
