Here he is in all of his regal glory.
Today we had a family gathering at our farm and my nephew brought his dog along. The unfamiliar dog immediately drew the attention of the dedicated guardian of the flock and he went right to work....sort of.
Ande is in this picture somewhere.....oh, yeah, that's him, hiding behind the barn.
OK, now he is going to get to work and show that dog who is boss!
He just needs to get a little closer to assess his options.....of course leaving a couple of fences in between him and the vicious canine until he plans his strategy-then he will move in for the attack.
Maybe he thinks he will have a better advantage from this angle....behind the sheep, in the far corner of the pasture. He probably should let the sheep check out the dog first, and then he'll make his move.
I am not sure how Ande's strategy of running in the opposite direction of the intruder is going to save my sheep in the event of an attack, but Ande seemed to think this was the best alternative to confrontation.
And where is this terrifying, vicious beast that has driven away such a brave and noble creature?
