Ned and the Sheep

Ned the Border Collie

Meet Ned. He is a Border Collie. And a herding dog. I met him and his owner Karin, at the Nedersta barn yesterday, where they were busy sheep herding. He got many commands during my visit. And got most of them right. Here he is in the snow, keeping an eye on the sheep.

Where did the dog go?

And here are some of the sheep. As I said the sheep belong to Karin who I have met before, she was one of my 100 Strangers.

These photos are wonderful, Steffe!! Especially of the border collie in action. These are very intelligent dogs and very quick in their actions. I know one that bangs his plate on the floor when he is hungry and brings the leach to his owner when he wants to go out. When he wants to play he brings all his toys. They are very demanding and need a lot of open space.

Karin told me that Ned gets more out of sheep herding for half an hour then he does talking a two hour walk. He gets to use his brain when he's working the sheep around and he loves every minute of it.
