Haha! I watched it last night, and wondered whether you had seen it. :-D

Don't know if you know this guy, but the training methods used by Amy Fleming , handed down by her mom, comes from an American called Monty Roberts, who gentles mustangs. I love the way she works with the horse rather than against them.

That looks like a good t.v. show. I would watch it if I had the time and channel!

I'm a Canuck, so I watch it at www.cbc.ca where you can get all previous seasons. I honestly don't know if you can get access to the CBC from the States.

They've just started caching it at http://www.free-tv-video-online.me/internet/heartland_%28ca%29/. 5th Season only so far.

Here in central NY, we get CKWS out of Kingston, Ontario on Time-Warner Cable, so other cable systems in northern states might also get it. I've seen reruns of Heartland on the weekends on one of the US channels too. Come to think of it, that channel also showed reruns of DaVinci's Inquest (another Canadian show) for awhile too.

Jenna, Have you seen McLeod's Daughters? It's an Australian show based on a farm. It's also on Netflix and I think it's pretty good!

Hi Jenna,
There is an episode on Monarch of the Glen featuring Scottish Blackface Sheep that I think you would like.

It's on netflix, instant watch. Season 1 episode 3. It is very funny.

You may want to visit Scotland after seeing the show!

That show is filmed about 3 hours north of me. I don't watch it very often but I was surprised to turn on my tv while I was in Colorado this week (at the USBCHA nationals) and see it on US tv.

I am a HUGE fan of Netflix instant streaming. I can handle the 8 dollar price tag for unlimited TV shows. I don't need them to be current. I can't wait to check out these shows and I just noticed the other day the first two season of Heartland on Netflix. Can't wait to check it out. :)

McLeod's Daughters is great. I really think you'd like it. I started watching it on Netflix and my Mom got hooked , then my aunt, then a few of my friends. Great show. Wish it was still on the air! Oh well. Try it out and tell us what you think. I'm off to check out yours!

On the pet network there's a show called saddle up you might want find. I don't have cable, just caught an episode while in a hotel. It's a horse training show, guy works calmly with the horse. Looked pretty much like the philosophy I subscribe to with horses, I think if you can find it you'd like it. He was giving a woman a lesson and really bringing home the point if quitting on a high note, not pushing for that little bit more and then having the whole session implode. Good stuff!

I LOVE Mcleod's Daughters. Jenna, I think you'd like it because a huge part of their farm's income is from sheep production. I'm totally going to watch your recommendation on netflix now too.

Ooh, I saw that in Netflix, but haven't watched it yet. Think I might now!

Oh, and I can't wait to see you at the fair this weekend! Safe travels! I am really excited for your meat rabbit workshop.
