    This has to be one of the all time favorite images I’ve ever seen. We have sheepherders come from Peru to herd goats and sheep in Montana. It’s so wonderful to see the dogs working and meet the herders.

  • I’m with you, Donna; I love seeing them work! I was driving between Riverton and Casper, Wy, the other day, and it just about killed me that I couldn’t stop and take some shots of some herds! AMR

  • Hi M’sM, thank you SO much for the honor! It’s funny it’s taken a while for this shot to catch on; like you, I’ve always liked the “on the job training” in action. Thanks for featuring this sheep-shot! AMR
