Rough Sheepdoggin'

Gibson and I don't herd well, nor do we do it right. But we do work together in our own self-taught language to get the job done. Don't ever look to my videos as quality herding, but do look to them as sheep getting into a pen or into a gate wthout any snapping wolf teeth or me running around in circles (that's what Gibson is for). Now, could I just shake grain in a bucket and make them come to me? Sure. But grain costs money, and when you need to get sheep back in a pen as much as I do, you start using your collie more and more. Here he is with some of the flock.
