Artist's Description

Crossing the high desert this afternoon, my friend and I came upon this large flock of “bummer” (orphan) lambs, napping in the middle of the rarely-traveled road.

The sheepherder’s dogs came right away, to get the little ones moving. The older dog obviously knew exactly what was expected of her – Apparently the same could not be said of all the little lambs.

It took a little time, but after a bit, the younger dog’s instincts kicked in, and soon the two were working together to clear the roadway.

Nuts about MUTTS
Down on the farm

Sheep herders here have a variety of preferences for the breeds of dogs they use to tend their flocks. These look like the popular border collie-and-Australian heeler cross.

Generally speaking, these working dogs are not pets, and will spend their lives in the company of livestock and other dogs, with a minimum of human interaction, beyond the shared business of tending stock.
