Walking with Sheep

I’m SO pleased with the Mossman today. I actually got to walk in front of the sheep for a few steps.

If you don’t know what that means, it’s walking (usually backwards) with the sheep between you and the dog. Everything has to be moving slowly enough for the sheep to be comfortable. If they’re not, they will run. If you look at the video below, you’ll see what I mean.

Today I got Moss to calm down enough that the sheep felt safe and were walking. We only did a few steps, but it’s a few steps at a time.

Sorry I didn’t have my camera with me.
