Sara is a different kind of Border Collie. Sara loves goats, Sara loves herding goats, Sara loves visiting the goats barn. Herding goats is hard as they have zero flocking instinct, they have minds of their own, and they are very stubborn, yet Sara is very good at rounding them up.
On the other hand, Sara is afraid of female sheep and wary of the boys. Sara no longer goes anywhere near the ewes barn, Sara will visit the rams but stays well clear of them. Sheep should be easy for her, yet the ewes follow her around and it totally unnerves her. Sara is an odd duck.
The other day I was watching her through the window and when she thought no one was watching she would put her head into the snowbank and eat the snow like it was ice cream. If someone was watching she wouldn't do it, the only time she would go for it was when she thought she was getting away with something.
When it warms up I am going to have Sara help me clean the house, for as you will see she is very good at beating rugs.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
