My friend Maria keeps sheep and working border collies, and I spent a fabulous day with her last weekend. I learned lots.
For instance: Llamas guard sheep from predators and take their job quite seriously.
This is Rambo with one of his appreciative sheep.
Lambs sure are cute. (OK, I already knew that one.)
But I never realized how pretty their mamas are.
Border collies enjoy their work, and take it seriously. This is Cooper.
Levi waits and watches. Sheep really enjoy their food – and the people that carry it for them. (Rambo spotted me with the camera and dared me to come closer. I declined. ) Watching Maria work with her canine partners was a real treat. If you’ve never had the opportunity to watch dogs doing the work they were born to do, you are missing out. I loved taking their photos, and will be posting more soon.
For more information about Maria, her dogs, and her livestock, please visit the North Face Farm website.
Thank you. Thanks for bringing a handsome boy for me to take photos of. 🙂
Your talent behind the lens lets us see the world in a whole new perspective. Awesome pictures and insight!
I’m glad you enjoyed them.
Love it. I spent an afternoon several years ago watching and photographing border collies work with a flock of sheep. It really is excitting.
Amazing site! I love your photography. It’s really inspiring to see how you capture the world. I look forward to seeing what you have to come.
Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed them.
