Dynamic Duo

One of Ryme's assignments from our lesson is that he and I are to work a single sheep, but starting with a pair of sheep first. Monday evening I sorted off two good sized ewes who made a dynamic duo for Ryme to work with. It was not a problem for him to keep them on track and driving. Our goal is to keep both the sheep and Ryme at a walk though, which we did manage here and there. Ryme has a run like a gazelle so it is some challenge to get him to feel the sheep and keep them at a walk without over commanding him. Or at least that is the theory and plan. But soon there will be very little daylight.

All of these issues are nothing in comparison to what some folks are facing. We're waiting to hear what wreckage has been left by hurricane Sandy.
