This was Joni's first experience of sheep herding. The owner of the sheep, Paula, kindly offered to introduce Joni to her flock and give her a first taste of this wonderful work. Joni was so excited when she realized what she was there for, but it was just wonderful to see the way she instinctively ran round them and kept them together. I was really impressed when she spotted this sheep who was moving away from the flock and she came out to bring her back. What can I say? She was born and bred to it. She has a long way to go before she has the knowledge and skills that really make a good herding dog. But Paula was really pleased with her potential. And I felt like a proud parent on the first day of school.
I suppose you would probably like to see a photo of the bath that followed? I will post that too, but in the meantime, don't be bothered by the mud. She wasn't.
