Dreams Really Do Come True

Yesterday we finished the first fence meaning ewestace and company could come home.  I went to pick up the three ewes about five with Jeff’s truck.  Amanda kindly caught all three ewes and got them into the back of the truck (ewestace started screaming her protests immediately upon being place in the truck).  It was now time to drive home I made it out of the farms drive before I became overcome with fear ewestace would pop open the hatch and lead a daring escape (which thankfully didn’t happen despite my worry the whole way home).  Once home Jeff got all three ewes from the truck to the pasture without incident.  We walked the fence one more time for peace of mind then left the girls to settle in. When dusk came it was time to put the girls in their house for the night, well Eeestace led the rebellion not going in the house.  This meant we needed the Border Collie after all, to put the sheep away.  I had not yet told Gus we brought his sheep home and he was really confused why I kept making him lay down and stay the whole way to the pasture (I thought we could at least start out with him listening). When we rounded the corner of the lane he spotted his very own sheep and immediately realized it was serious time.  Gus listened so well and did what I asked him and we got all three sheep in their house (even the unruly Ewestace). I had forgotten Gus’s habit of getting in the water trough after herding as a reward until I turned around and saw my very happy Border Collie cooling off after his job well done!
