Today, Caldi proved she does know her name and isn't simply following Pom. My friend and I had taken her to a little get-together with Beeducked's boys (second time but last time she had just finished being in season). My friend had hold of her collar when she made a bid for freedom. It was quite entertaining watching friend and Beeducked careering round the house trying to catch her. When she reappeared I simply called, "Caldi, come on." and she did. She then decided that the boys were ok after all and the business was soon concluded. Three weeks to wait now to find out if she's taken this time.

For the shetlands, I shout "Quality!". Sounds random, but in fact is the name of everyone's favourite sheep, she knows her name, and where she goes, the others follow.

Bless.   :love: :sheep:

Cheviots, I don't shout, it's a dog job.

Love it  :roflanim:

I yell sheeeep.....and they come running.  And Fynne and Maximus, the two rams know their names.  Females are all named, but too long winded shouting out all their names morning and night.


A call for some help in Ireland.
