Day 84 of 2020

Sage saves the day!!
The two wild sheep mentioned yesterday were acquired by our son to graze his orchard.
There is no grass left so we said they may as well come to our orchard. It took a lot of cunning but son and hubby managed to get them on a trailer and into our orchard. 
They stayed there approx 5 minutes before going through the fence and ending up in the cow paddock.
A big paddock.
Anyone who has dealt with sheep knows how hard they are to shift if they don't want to.
Enter Sage, a neighbour's dog.
She won a placing at Dog Trials over the weekend.
Within minutes she had them from one end of the paddock to the other, through the gate and back into the orchard.
The fences were mended yesterday and so far, they are still in it!
It was amazing to watch such a good dog in action!

See you tomorrow,


  1. Love watching dog trials, those working dogs are so clever. Good to see you have the sheep contained now.

  2. Good job Sage. Such clever dogs and great to watch..

  3. Well done, Sage. How lucky to have a prize wining dog nearby. They are amazing to watch.

  4. I would love to have seen that. Sage looks like she means business.


Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to today.
