I've trained working border collies for over 14 years and trialed in USBCHA, WCDA and AHBA events. My partner, Mike Franklin and I work dogs in Calico Basin, Nevada. This blog is solely for the purpose of sharing my love of working border collies. I do not have stud service or puppies available. Please contact me at smokinjbc@msn.com and I will be happy to share my recommended working breeders. If you are interested in teaching your dog to be a sheepdog in the Southern Nevada area, please feel free to contact me.

Blustery Day for Sheep

We had another blustery day in Las Vegas. In local news, despite wind warnings, some window washers decided to chance it. This resulted in a broken rig, several smashed windows and I imagine some very relieved families when fire fighters finally got them down. Every time the wind blows here, there is someone who doesn't take it into consideration.

Despite the winds, I managed to make it out to work dogs this morning. Still, only two ewes have lambed- not sure what the hold up is but with the horrid weather, I'm sure these ladies are just waiting for the least opportune moment.

They look and move a little like hungover elephants right now.

This one is especially enormous. I'm a little worried that she has a dozen in there...

Here are last week's newest additions, Moo was next up to lamb and did so with little fanfare.
Here is my favorite lamb, so far- a little ewe lamb dipped in white. For now, just calling her "Fancy Pants". Yes, I get a little goofy about lamb names.

Her brother is almost identical to Moo's ewe lamb last year, Moolita. He has a enormous head though- so we'll call him Big Head Todd.

He's too busy to show off his stately brow. Hopefully he doesn't have some dread lamb disease that I'm making light of. Seems pretty sparky though.
