2011 National Sheepdog Finals Blog This link is to a blog profiling the handlers going to the US Border Collie Handler's Association National Finals in September. There are some Canadians being profiled in the most recent posts. The last post was about Amanda Milliken of Kingston, ON. I just read the most recent one about Scott and Jenny Glen (Alberta, woot woot!) There is some pretty sage advice in there for anyone in this hobby. Plus it's just more enjoyable reading about herding, for the obsessed. Nice write-up Jenny!
Wall 2 Wall Sheep Ranch Fun Day & Mini Clinic
Wall 2 Wall Sheep Ranch Fun Day & Mini Clinic, Nov 15, 2009. We had 30 dogs and 15 handlers participate. Handlers & dogs received assistance from many seasoned handlers & trainers, dogs were able to try out different handling styles and handlers were able to work their skills with different dogs. A great day, with wonderful weather for November in Manitoba, and the opportunity to make new friends and renew old friendships was enjoyed by the dogs and handlers alike.
We had some special guests and dogs who had never been introduced to sheep previously including some rescue border collies and Riddle the blind Border Collie. Photos and video curtesy Sally Hull of Hull's Haven Border Collie Rescue & Shelagh Willcock. Here are some highlights of the day:
'He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.'

Face Value: Sheep & Smiles
It seems sheep are discerning eaters?at least when it comes to who serves them. In a 2004 study, researchers at CambridgeUniversity in England gave sheep the choice of two doors to push open to get food. One door depicted a smiling human, the other an angry one. By a vast majority, the sheep chose the door with the smiling face.
