My all time favorite YouTube video is "Extreme Herding". If you haven't seen it, click here to check it out.
Brisco and I actually went herding back in 2002. Well, if you call three sheep and a totally green handler "herding"! =:O)
Kathy arranged to have a herding instinct test on a Saturday, and then on Sunday we'd have a small trial. Brisco, to my knowledge, had never seen sheep in his three years. Here's a picture of the trio of sheep we were to herd. I call it, Brownie & His Posse.
We entered the field together, and the instructor--with the staff--gave Brisco direction. I, like an idiot, just stood there.
Here's Brisco keeping the gang together. Notice how he's facing off with that sheep!
When we left the field, I remember Kathy saying, "Who knew the little guy had so much eye!" It was a wonderful experience I'll always remember.
My next goal is get Mike and/or Cosi on sheep. I think Mike will have a lot of instinct. Cosi, on the other hand, may be a gripper.
