Pyke our new Border Collie helping us for the first time to get the goats in for shearing, originally uploaded by hardworkinghippy.
Shearing has started and Pyke has been helping to bring the goats in three times a day. The last day of shearing he did the job perfectly and we’re so pleased that he’s enjoying himself.
We’ve been walking him a lot with the goats since he arrived but keeping an eye on what’s happening because it would be a shame if the goats attacked him and he was afraid and put off working with them for life.
The repetition over the past few days has obviously paid off. We’ve still not managed to get him to concentrate when we want him to but his behaviour has really improved over the past couple of weeks.
