Even :)

Well Even got to go on sheep today :) To say I was excited was a HUGE understatement :) I was spazzing...absolutely spazzing!
My friend Sarah took some photos of her working, and also some video :) I love her...she is naughty, pushy, sassy and also has a great feel...or what I can tell when she is not being naughty :) She doesn't care for her Come Bye side, just like Lynn, but unlike Lynn, she is covering her sheep :) Yes Lynn...I know we will get there. The #1 thing I like about her, she gets to balance and pushes in, too hard sure, but that is what I am used to...I LOVE that :)
I couldn't move very well with all the clothing I had on, AND all the snow...yuck. So just ignore me...but she was very cool. I REALLY like her, she reminds me of her mother Zip :) I cried, I'll admit it...I did. I did take her to a massage therapist this evening to check her out, no issues other than some normal shoulder tightness, which is to be expected with increasing her workload.

So Even is now a real dog...and honest to goodness real dog...I can't believe it...I am on cloud 9 right now :) And although the winter will make training her on sheep harder, I am just happy she is sound and was able to work sheep today...I am going to have a LOT of fun with her :)
So VERY VERY HAPPY!!!!!

There was almost a year of pent up frustration about not working going into the first part of the video. But she sure settled into some nice work at the end and showed some of the nice natural things that she will be doing next year. I'm so happy for you and for Even.
