As I wrote, once Bonnie got the idea of what sort of flank was required, I would lie her down the moment I saw she was going into a flank wrong. And then I'd repeat the flank. The second time it was usually much improved. And Bonnie used to be very slicey with her flanks.

It has been a very bad stretch for Bonnie when it comes to working sheep. The snow stayed for so incredibly long that all of the ewes managed to have their lambs so our little training window between the end of winder and lambing never happened. Of course she works the flock but it's a piece of cake for her. But basically, she hasn't done much work since December. The good new is that Darinka is turning 5 months tomorrow so soon we will start going with both dogs to train somewhere else.
But we have geese again and here is a short video with geese for the first time with Bonnie. they are very young so Bonnie's task is not to spook them, since they fall over and tend to crash into things.

The vid of Bonnie driving those two tiny lambs made my day, so cute! Especially the "let´s hide behind this tree" part at the end.
Our lambing season has begun, well actually we are just over half way already; just under hundred lambs right now, hopefully about seventy more to come.
