working on it!

I am working on this webinar like nuts, in all my free time today (had to go to the office for a few hours). I plan on posting a 5-8 minute clip at the very least tonight, and work on it an hour or so a night this week to get it right. So far the intro, parts of the dulcimer, and a tuning demo using an electric guitar tuner has been filmed. I think I'll redo the tuner section, but you can expect to see a decent demonstration tonight before I turned it. It was nuts to think I could make a 25 minute instruction video on one computer in a day, but I can get it done in a week, I am certain!

Check back before bed!

Hey Jenna, is this going to be password protected? When will we receive our passwords?

I expect this will take some time--these things always take longer than we expect.

You can expect to get a link that won't be public. No passwords yet. And it will all be figured out, by and by.

I wanted to comment on this post, so as to say, get back to me whenever, I know how busy you are.
With that said, I have to note here how adorable your dogs are.
I was wondering though, when considering dog breeds for shepherding did you ever consider OES? (that's Old English Sheepdogs in the long version). I wanted to know what a girl with some experience under her belt has heard or seen about matching the right shepherding dog to the right owner and the right flock.
And if you know anyone working with OESes especially and are able to pass on their contact information that would be much appreciated too.

I think what you're doing is revolutionary,
Keep living the dream,

I don't know much about non-border collies. The only other dogs I've actually seen gather and drive are kelpies and the rare Aussie. I thought OES were protection dogs, like they watched the flock and lived with it but didn;t herd? But I might be dead wrong? Someone can chime in....

Just as an interesting statistic, professional videographers figure 10 hours of work (storyboarding, shooting, post-production, etc.) for every minute of HD video that will be suitable for a DVD. If you're beating that, you're doing great!

I’m no sheep dog expert, but I used to have a neighbor with a lot (understatement) of sheep and he used an OES dog named Victor to “drive” the sheep, which is different from herding. The dog would calmly walk the sheep here and there quite effectively. He also would do the same with a few cows.

No worries about the dulcimer webinar!...don’t stress too much.

Thanks Jenna and thanks redbird,

I've heard the same things about OESes too.

I'm a bit of a dog fanatic but don't know much about them (there not common round here).
My first live encounter was someone trying to hand me off a OES pup because they knew I was country bound (heartbreakingly I had to decline because I wasn't bound yet). I can't own a dog (especially a working breed) and have them bored all day in my suburban home. It'd be against their nature.
Could you imagine your dogs living without sheep? without room to run? it'd kill their spirit.

thanks again,
