    Sorry some of these suck, I was trying to keep an eye on everything that was going on and snap pictures so my main concern was not getting run over. Also, Cara was starting to get tired by this point, because I'm dumb and didn't take my camera in until our third time in the pen. Aaanyways, enjoy the little bear on sheep.

    This is the group of sheep Cara was on at first, she did well but didn't want to go out around them so ended up on a larger group. Unfortunately I didn't take my camera in when she was on the smaller group so this will have to do.

    This is the group I did get pictures on, it was 50 or so lambs. Cara was a little unsure and intimidated by the larger group at first but quickly got that it was the same concept.

    Probably one of my favorites of the bunch.

    That is wonderful! I'm another who would like to take a go with sheep, but I'm not too experienced in that area. Cara looks like she could do anything if she can handle that many sheep, haha! :D

    Thank you all so much!

    Adrianne, she actually is very good with the sheep. My trainer's wife commented that she's kind to them. :p

    Also just wanted to update that we went again today! (We're going to start going every tuesday and thursday) Cara once again impressed me, and this time was only on the smaller group. She only worked for 15-20 minutes though because it was just too hot, so rather than push it I opted to pull her off after a nice run. :(

    I just wanted to say that the other day my dad and I were talking about Aussies and I had to pull out a picture of Cara to show him what my ideal looking Aussie looks like. I love her so much and I love seeing her do what she was meant to do and looking awesome while doing it!
