Thank You! Glorious fun! The wives don't have to worry when the men say, "Honey, I'm going out tonight with the guys". Thumbs up

The amazing thing is that the border collies are the ones moving the sheep!

True, but the men are controlling the dogs. It sure must have taken a lot of preparation and practice to pull that off! The sheep must have thought they were crazy!

Here in the Savannah area, I had a friend who raised the border collie dogs. In order to train the dogs it was necessary for them to buy sheep. It's like watching a ballet; each movement, each whistle means something to each dog. It is an art form. Thumbs up

I have already shared the video with my friends and family. Thank You! Thank You!

We had a friend who raised and trained them too, Greene. It is fascinating to watch. He gave us one of his pups. It drove us crazy herding the water sprinklers and making ruts in the lawn, so we gave it back to him. He said we'd ruined him for herding by trying to stop him. He had to sell it as a companion dog instead of a working dog.

I used to have a Border Collie .. her name was Sarah - utterly amazing dogs. I really miss her.

We have had 2 border collies, 1 absolutely amazing, the other smarter than the first but to smart for her own good.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
