Default Eve Working *pics*

Eve went to work sheep in Florence a few days ago. We had a blast, she is highly talented despite my EXTREME incompetence as a handler. She has confidence issues and doesn't work as smoothly as she could because of it, but those will go away once I stop handling her poorly.

Pics aren't the best, it was hard to get decent shots considering I was shooting into the sun, and a few were taken by my mother who can only point and shoot. I only have one of us working sheep (pics weren't easy to get in the big field) the rest are tame goats.

(lol, just to clarify, I'm not hitting her with the stick and the bottle on the end of the stick is to prevent it from hurting her if she runs into it)

Sheena, a pretty Catahoula mix that was training at the same time as Eve and I



Ben, one of Fran's dogs



Doc, one of the trained dogs that I practiced with. LOVE this boy, very powerful but stylish worker.



And Eve taking a break and watching everyone else work:



Done!

Great pictures! Eve looks like she's really enjoying herself. Thank you for the BC fix.

She's got some moves to her! Can't wait to see what happens as you two get more confident and skilled.

Fabulous shots, Grace! She looks so tiny next to you, LOL. How much does she weigh now?

She looks really good, I can't wait to see her work in person.

She's little still Virginia, like 27lbs I think.

We're an odd couple, she's very small but I'm very tall. lol

I have a video that my mom took, some of it is awful but I'll edit out the parts looking straight into the sun and post it later on.

nice. she looks good. she doesn't look like she's hurting for confidence. i remember being in the pen with a corgi and a few sheep and all i could think was WTF!! and my trainer would step in and make it look so easy and she would get my totally green dog herding perfectly.

nice down
