June so far….

We’re heading into summer, and everyone is taking advantage of the last of spring. Zee and Cilla have become part of the pack and already have very deep barks, and are growing so fast! They are confident and good natured girls. Cersei has become their self appointed mentor, she protects them from cranky ewes and corrects them when they play too close to the sheep. She reminds me a bit of Sele because she does not tolerate any nonsense.

In the first video, Josin, Marcia, and Thule are heading to their favorite spots, while Oso sits in my lap….yes MY LAP as I brush out some of his undercoat. The weather is turning hot and everyone is blowing coat. I think it’s time to set up the kiddie pools.

Thule, has also become a fully integrated pack member and as you can see in the second video, she is also bonding well to her sheep. Besi and Tiles (Cabo) are my two night owls so missed out today, they will come alive later this afternoon at feeding time, when they will play and interact with the rest of the pack and then take over guarding for the night. The photos all speak for themselves….literally, they’re captioned! Not sure how I ended up with the two black and white photos, but I liked them, hope you do too.

  1. Hello,
    I am in Western Oregon, near Eugene. We have lived on our rural 2 acre hobby farm for over 20 years, and never lost a goat to a predator. We have had a Pyr for 13 years, but she has been more pet than LGD. Now, however, we have more and more valuable goats and the predator problem gradually increases. My goats will not go out to pasture sisnce a bobcat has been hanging around all spring .

    I honestly haven’t wanted an LGD to replace our Pyr, because for her it was all about roaming a large territory whenever she got the chance to leave. But a friend of mine who has talked to you, steered me towards the SM. All of that to say that I like what I’m learning, and would like to talk with you sometime, if possible. When is a good time for you?
