Close Encounters of the SHEEP Kind. (WARNING: MAY CAUSE SMILES.🥰) Vlog 422

Somedays, I'm so glad I have my camera rolling. Today was one of those days. Mark and Jess visited me in the barn for some long overdue repairs, and I caught on of the most sweetest moments between Cinnamon and Lucy.
Today was also the day I vaccinated my next group of ewe lambs to be bred in April...
This took a bit longer than I thought. LOL.

  • I have wondered about your dog. I have noticed her doing some things that I thought were startling to the sheep (when you seemed to need them calm) or maybe working at cross purposes to what you seemed to be doing at the time. Thanks for explaining the situation.

  • I had a welsh corgi that would watch what we did, then you tell him to go get them and he would round up livestock by himself. He didn't have formal training, but smart as a whip! I think she didn't understand what you want. I have a Pit Bull who is dumb as a post, but wanted to help. If he doesn't understand a command, he licks your face. So cute, but not helpful. I think your dog is toward the upper end for sure. As others have said, training her would make her much more helpful. I'm in the same boat, though. I have a black lab/great pyrenees cross. Huge dog and so willing to work. I can train him myself, but classes would give me structure so I don't find reasons not to do it. Good luck with her!

  • Sandy needles are inexpensive and by changing them every few ewe you're minimasing the possibility of cross contamination. As far as concerns the dog, if I were you I would leave a collar permanently on the handle systems bars to remind me every time to tight her down! Wonderful job Sandy, I can't wait to see your private little space done.

  • Hi Sandy, Sheep dogs are trained with just THREE herding commands that you can start off with: 1) Come-bye or go to the left of stock (go) clockwise around them 2) Away - go to the right of the stock, or counterclockwise around them 3) Stand- Stop or slow down I’m sure Kensie can learn these right away!

  • You could wrap a piece of thin plastic shopping bag on the plunger with a rubber band of a disposable syringe to have a longer & smoother service but it's better to change the plastic sheet every day, that's only recommend for the syringe which are use feeding the lambs.

  • I really agree with you Sandy, but she can be trained to do it right. Nipping is normal she’s trying to push because she doesn’t understand in that area it’s down . I agree with others she needs a trainer. I say this with love and understanding. Our son purchased his dog from a gentleman that has award winners and sadly he didn’t get him trained and had to have a leg removed due to a horse kick. Lesson learned. So less stress for you at the handling system hire a trainer and watch her grow she is very smart!

  • Border Collies are not "Heelers". They are bred to be "Gatherers" (Watch Sheep Herding Trials). They will always try to bring the flock toward the Handler. Example: If the Handler wants to move a flock from one pasture to another he will walk in "front" and the Border Collies will bring the flock from behind and toward the Handler.

I've never seen a ewe so confident and curious, she's like a dog. ❤ Watching Kinsey want to work so badly and be so willing, it really wouldn't take long to train her. I've witnessed her having wonderful moments. She's only learning what she's watched you do, which isn't even a fraction of her potential. She looks to you often which is good. Just don't give up!

  • Wow! So much dog training advice on here! All your viewers are so helpful! I am not a dog trainer, but I’ve had a couple border collies and have sheep.... my one collie who has passed recently would get totally fixated on the sheep (really any animal) and you could not derail her train of thought off them when she got like that. Trying to train her for herding was super stressful and damaging to the training I was trying to do with the other one. The one I still have is great for moving sheep. She can be in their pen, knows when we are moving/working or not. When I want her to stop and chill, I get her to lie down, then give her ‘that’ll do’ command and a pet, and she goes back out of working mode. Just my experience if it helps. It all comes down to what Kinzie is like mentally, and how much time you have to work on it. Whatever you decide, consistency will be key. 💕💖 keep doing you Sandi! Love spending time in your barn (virtually)!

  • I think Cinnamon is seeing her as a baby and understands that Lucy felt nervous. She was treating her like a lamb. lol

  • I think Kinzie needs regular exercise followed by consistent training. I've had a blue heeler and aussie cattle mix and the herding dogs are BUILT for high energy. She was entirely unruly and a handful until she got a long walk or extensive fetch play (I'm talking like 30 minutes of dashes). After the built up energy (from weeks of not fully working her out) released she was so much more tameable and ready to listen. Just running up and down the barn isn't really the focused exercise Kinzie needs since it is sporadic and all on her terms. Try walking her an hour a day for a week and you may truly see a big difference.

  • I am very pleased to see you have taken action with your dog, in particular when your working around the handling system. She is trainable, despite her age and natural instincts, to be calm when you need her to be so but it will take time and patience. Regarding you auto vaccinator. These tools work well when the container for the vaccine (or whatever product) is well filled but as the bottle starts to progressively empty it will tend to suck air in rather instead of fluid. This actual situation is made worse by when you release the trigger grip having given a dose relative to your actual hand position - commonly folks raise the gun immediately after dosing for safety reasons to lift the needle away vertically from the sheep and simultaneously release the trigger to expecting the gun to refill for the next animal. The problem all too frequently is that the needle tip that is inserted into the bottle within the gun is located briefly in the air in the bottle and not within the fluid - result the gun does not refill with the correct amount of vaccine. Suggestions 1 Don't release the handle to refill the dose until you have moved your hand position to one such where the refill needle in the bottle is fully inserted in the fluid. This change to your procedure is a real pain because you have already established a rhythm of individual actions you use of hand and eye coordination going down a line of sheep in a race and you have learn to disrupt this well practised skill to make this change. 2. Consider changing your dosing equipment to one where the bottle is held at about 45.degrees on top of the dosing gun - they are more likely to hold the bottle at such an angle that the fluid is likely to be covering the filling needle. Many of these are also designed to fill from plastic collapsible bottles which reduce the risk of air being sucked in to the dosing chamber. 3. If you have many animals to dose then I favour the bottle hung around my neck and a short plastic pipe attached to the dosing gun as these rarely fill with air. 4. Consider using something like an adjustable mechanical syringe for giving injections like those vaccinations. You fill them with a large dose of product as you would with a standard syringe and then adjust the amount of the individual dose from 1 - 5 ml. Personally I prefer the Hauptner tool as it is a quality German tool made of stainless steel and glass but it is not cheap. It is available in various sizes from 10 - 50ml and all spare parts are available separately. 5. Or of course do as you did simply use a standard syringe are refill as necessary to complete the task.

  • Contact a trainer, boarded collies ARE herding dogs and you CAN teach an old dog new trick, dogs can be trained at any age. From experience I've had with my trainers dog (who bites horses when we are lunging because it's her instinct) you shouldn't dismiss this, it doesn't just go away.

  • Easy fix. Just train a place or a down stay at a certain location. You can set it out of the pin and train her to jump out and go to this. Once she has the sheep were you want them you then send her to that location. Move the sheep and call her back. The process is really easy and training is 4 times a day but each round is less then 5 min. The beginning training can even be done in your house. Love to walk you through this. I love it as I can get my dog away from a dangerous situation at work yet it fun for them.

  • Lucy looks like a little wet lamb, no wonder the ewes are curious! You could probably get a lot more done with her, than Kinzie just from her willingness to interact with people. There are many aspects to a working dog aside from "breed". What motivates them is another thing. I'm not a fan of Kinzie, I don't know where you got her. Her tail is just too high.

  • Can you not hang your new lambs upside-down by their hind legs to have gravity force the mucus out of their lungs? Kind of like you can with calves. That seems like a nice tool though. Good luck, and here's to hoping you don't need it at all.
