They probably reflect how you take care of them and work them with your dogs.
"My sheep are wonderful to work because they are worked by good dogs and I respect them for it. I do not allow dogs to chase or harass my sheep. If I have a dog that is a poor dog, I won't allow them to work my sheep for long periods of time.
A good friend has told me that our sheep are a reflection of our dogs. How true this statement is. Think about that when you are having a difficult time working you own sheep. Think about that before you offer your sheep to be used by dogs that have no respect for your animals. Think about it before you offer to put your ill-mannered pup out on someone else's group of sheep."
Think about the above next time you are working someone else's sheep. Amen.
