When Border Collie meets Sheep

Hello friends! How have you been? 324_MG_0642

Is it me or this Summer just passed too fast? Between trainings, barbecues, hiking, barbecues, spending time with the family, making new friends, more barbecues… the Summer was one for the books.

This year, the cherry on the sundae was definetly spending time at the farm. As you know, I took herding classes with the best instructor ever and, of course, with my best friend. Don’t we look happy? I know I was 🙂

First time we went there it was a bit weird: waking up early on Saturday morning, driving up North, rainy day, mud, fences, no idea what to expect…

But then I saw her, the Golden Fleeced Sheep, and I knew: I was made for herding you baby… 308_MG_0494First I had to pass the test (and pass it like a boss) and then it was just work, work, work (stop thinking about RiRi, please, this is serious!).  It’s not an easy job, not every dog can do it and it takes a lot of practice and coordination! In this picture we look as if we were filming a scene in “Fast and furious, ride herd on”. I was exhausted.

These herding classes just made me discover new things about myself and my best friend, who learnt how to guide me with simple gestures, moves and words. Always in control, he helped me activate my instincts and control my excitement. 272_MG_0254 We spent great time in nature, meeting new friends and relaxing.

Jokes aside, I really missed you, my virtual friends! I hope you find inspiration in this and if you need more details, please reach out.

Also, feel free to share the fun activities you’ve discovered this Summer, I’m a curious fellow.

Until next time.
