Herding pictures and video from this weekend.

Saturday and Monday were working sheep days for Minnie. On Saturday we attended a beginners herding clinic and HCT test and then Monday was a private herding lesson. These were put on by the Snowy Butte ASC in Eagle Point, Oregon. The clinician/judge was Roy Sage who Glenn did herding years ago with Minnie's great-great-great-great grandma, Dixie, years ago. Turns out Minnie's LOVES sheep. On Saturday she earned the first leg of her HCT. She will have no problem filling the paws of Dixie and Gabbie when it comes to herding. In fact Roy made the statement that Minnie should come along faster than Dixie did. We are so excited to do more herding in the future and will be working on getting Minnie some sheep of her own over the next few months. Below are some pictures that were taken of her first time in the ring with sheep.

"Here sheepy, sheepy, sheepy"

This is the video of her actual HCT test. This was not her best run of the day. They brought in fresh sheep that turned out to be very light and one kept breaking off. She stuck with it and never shut down. After her test was done they swapped out the one ewe that kept breaking off.
Ok after fighting with it, I can't get the YouTube embed code to copy and past and when I type it in manually I get an error.
So I will make yet another post with the video. :)
