    Wink Home Invasion: Alert "Sheepdog"

    In the winter the Big Horn Sheep wander around our area in a herd of 30-40, including the old Rams. Apparently in the spring they break into smaller herds of 8-15 or so, and the old Rams run off somewhere else, as do the ladies. Dome Rock, about a mile north of us, is apparently the “calving” area for the Big Horn’s, because the State of Colorado shuts all trails into and out of the Dome Rock SWA off during the calving season. This heard of 13 hung around our yard for an hour or so, until the Doberlady finally spooked them off.

    Tekka, our new Border Collie/GSD mix, was impressed. Although a “herding dog breed”, she was rather timid, staying on the deck and growling. She’d never seen sheep, let alone sheep that big, and did not want to go “herd”.



    Gonna have to work on training that pup.

    How many of us would like to live in a place like that and the 'wife' would rather be in a 'sub'...where it's safe?

    What a gorgeous view...land and animals.

    That was really cool, and I'm totally jealous of your back yard and the critters that show up in it. Thanks for posting!

    Here's a pic of one of the big Rams. I believe this fella is the "Boss", but right now he's nowhere to be found:
