We visited a working sheep farm and had the opportunity to witness shearing and herding.
This series of photos shows the sheep the dog herded in from the far reaches of the pasture.
It was most amusing for those of us not raised on a farm!
Some are sheared and some are not!
This one dares to move away from the group.
But, not for long!
One sheep seems to have some attitude!
What a great opportunity for us to see this!
They will all be sheared eventually...like it or not, guys!
I couldn't stop taking pics of all those faces...
He's still in charge!
A little guy gets a snack!
