After a long absence, Monday saw us all back in North Yorkshire for a herding day organised by Jacky G. I was particulary pleased to be there as I'd not seen Jacky for 15yrs!
As well as Nell , we'd taken our new puppy Brambledale Bessie Black to meet up with her half brother, Lyn Armour's Brambledale Brown Bear who amazed us all with his ability to hold the sheep - WOW as Jacky said!! For more pics of an amazing Robbie go to Jacky's website http://www.spanglefish.com/beardedcolliesforshepherding/
Hugh & Nell had a couple of good sessions in the 'parrot pen' - it was a great thrill for me to watch Nell working , the ambience was greatly enlivened by cries of 'Come bye' followed by raucous laughter - I swear those parrots have a sense of humour!!!!!
An enjoyable day all round!!
Thanks to Jacky for the pics below
Bess noticed the sheep - Robbie is transfixed!!!
