Still some snow left

Camouflage dogs at the ranch

Still a bit of snow left on the hills as we went to work sheep

Jet getting in some exercise

Yoko watching her daddy work sheep.

Yoko driving her sheep.  She works like Jet, but carries her head low like her mother.
Yoko turned out to be a very pretty girl.  She has quite the build.

This is how Kilt carries herself on sheep.  She has the low head set, but has more tension in her body than Yoko.  Kilt also has lots more forward push.  It's hard to a get a dog with just the right touch...not too much tension, but with the forward push needed to lean on the sheep.  It is such an interesting hobby.   I guess that's why I enjoy it so much.

Maybe it's the colouring on her face, but Yoko has a sweet soft look to her. But you know who my favourite is:)

Yes, Krazy Kilt...takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'.....

Yoko is "soft" like her sire. :0)
