wow they are so gorgeous
Great photo, I think the man in the picture may be the coldest one, two very warm dogs! which are beautiful by the way.
Great pictures - I could do with a coat like that in this weather
Does anyone know of any OES in this country that still work sheep? Thanks.
there gorgeous so big + fluffy + i love the pic all that snow thats great
The last known dog to work the sheep died at the end of last year,, i had the pleasure of seeing this dog in the ring.he was a super lad and typical of the breed of yesteryear, he would be working the sheep one night and the next be in the ring,, believe me when I say that takes some doing to go from field to ring wwas a credit to his owner. ive never heard of any others since,, they still use them a lot in america,,but they really were meant to drive cattle to market more than herd sheep, hence the rolling gait , which is the lazy walk on such long journeys.. mine just "herd" me or anyone else in the house LOL
Thanks b-eye - I found that really interesting. I don't suppose there is any footage or photos of this dog?
I;ll have a dig and see if I can find anything for you.
Thanks Would love to see more pics of your dogs too if poss!
