We have recently added Maremmas to our animal mix. Very different to the herding dogs but equally dedicated to their work, keeping the foxes at bay.
Good day with Roy training today. All the work is starting to pay off, he is so keen to learn and to understand what is required. A great dog to start to learn the art of trialling. If we can get the cast, lift and draw perfect I can think about competing.
We displayed our Dorpers yesterday at the Braidwood Show with Claremont White Dorpers. Like all perfect Show days it rained, after such a dry spell no one was complaining.
Some of you might remember the fuss at last years Yass Show, well we received notice that the Show committee had passed a motion that "no shedding sheep are to be allowed on the grounds". so it was with regret that the President informed us we would not be able to display our sheep. Interesting that some districts are still manning the barricades.
