“They’re Behind You”!

Little Mo doesn’t realise the lambs are behind her!

Two years ago today we were helping Ian and Ruth Morris to gather sheep at Middle Hill Farm in Shropshire when I saw Mo looking very pleased with herself and not realising that two lambs were standing immediately behind her.

As it happened, it didn’t matter at all that the lambs were outside the pen, because of course, they didn’t need shearing but it’s generally good practise to get all the sheep in, rather than let the dog think it’s OK to leave a few behind.
