Chase dressed up like a herding dog and went trick or treating at Susan’s. Today he rated his sheep — moved up even with their heads and then dropping back to their hindquarters. That’s the way a herding dog checks that his charges aren’t contemplating a directional change (on their own). That’s a huge increase in skill level. Part of this video is of grass — Chase and the sheep were in the big field and moving fast. Be patient, please.
This second video shows Chase doing a splendid job of retrieving the sheep he pressured past Susan. It isn’t aimless rodeoing that we saw a few weeks ago. This is a workmanlike process of bringing the sheep back in a group.
Cheryl also caught some lovely stills today.
