Phyllis and Rita came over today to work Jade and Pearl (Jam) in the round pen. First up was Pearl. She's just like her dad ... good amount of eye, very natural balance, very biddable, and won't get a novice in trouble. Hopefully, she will teach Rita as much as Zip has taught me over the years.
Jade is more like Echo ... a bit of a firecracker ... but very nice. Lots of push, tons of presence, good power, and the heart of a lion. Not to mention ... she's as pretty as a show dog with Phyllis' grooming skills! Needless to say, she went home and got a bath!
Later on in the day, I couldn't help but push the sheep around a bit with my own dogs so I could take a few photos.
First up ... the Monster.
And the old man ... he looks pretty good, doesn't he?
And, of course, Reese. She is really coming along nicely.
