I love when a trial photographer is on site. It’s usually the only time I get shots of my dogs working. It also helps me realize that perhaps my runs weren’t as bad as they felt from the inside. It’s always extra special when Dick Bruner is that photographer. Not only is he a great guy, he has a talent for catching those moments when it appears things are actually going good.
Here is some of that calm, flat-footed duck work I mentioned in my last post.
The drive up to the panels in one of our better sheep runs. For as reactive as these sheep were for Jig, she remained fairly relaxed. I, on the other hand, was a bit twitchy. No way could I give commands quick enough to keep things under control. Thankfully, this girl knows how to read her stock.
And, finally, one of our best cattle moments happened slightly after this shot. Not only did Jig stop the cattle without turning it into a rodeo, but she held pressure on the heads until the cattle turned away. Nice to see those glimmers.
