Thank God I'm a country boy!

Don't think Eskies are too prissy to be farm dogs! Barclay enjoyed a morning of eating sheep poop, chasing cats, playing in the pond, digging in the dirt, and now he's back inside with a big ol' bone. What could be better? Doesn't he look happy?

Yesterday he was herding the sheep and goats. He surprised me by figuring out which animals were trying to get out of the herd and go their own way, and he'd run this way and that to keep them together. He even had a little face off with Marian, where she tried to get past him but he kept blocking her. Good instinct! Maybe someday he can learn to help me move the animals around. Except the llamas. They don't go for any of that herding stuff!
