    Cute! He looks like one happy dog! My ACD, Ma'ii (Muh-ee), use to do stuff like this in his previous home. Now he's a hiking/bike buddy.

    Nice pictures. :) I would love to see some more - have been keeping up with all the threads and much like a few others, I would like to get a good idea of their conformation. Do you have any normal standing/stacked pictures?

    Gunnah looks so eager and happy to work but has his ears turned towards you for direction the whole time. Can you teach my dog that? :rofl1:

    The smile on my face is because Beiber and I were working on the pressure from the fence....Beibs did not want to enter the pressure zone (tight in on the fence) but this picture is the moment he let go and went right in....a break thru in our training with Lynn's help

    I think the consistent thing that can be noticed from the pictures when it comes to working style is the relaxation on everyones part, sheep, dog and handler are not rushed, or stressed....nice and collected with emotional control

    gunnahs drive is powerful and does get the sheep moving faster but for oushing thru gates ...gunnah does gage how much power very nicely as the sheep do not run far off in the distance

    Would you consider , please getting some new pics , with them stackedish?

    I want to see how they all look compared to each other and what the differences are compared to each bloodline. It will help me with the split thing and just in general.

    I appreciate it if you can and understand if you dont have time. thank you
