    Isn't there some kind of law against that sort of thing?

    I've seen this one before. Amazing, isn't it? (Yeah, you can imagine that if there's something sheep-related online, it's not going to be long before someone sends me a link to it.) The lights of course make it really fun to watch, but even without the lights, the sheepdog work is truly amazing.

    I'm wondering where Danger is, too. He's been online. How can he not sense the presence of this thread? Or maybe he's deliberately avoiding it, just to mess with us.

    Yeah. I mean those are some fine looking sheep... :uhh: Not that I would know a fine looking sheep or... :uhh: I mean every sheep is good looking... :uhh:

    Maybe he's just watching the video over and over and... :bugeye:

    Or his hands are just too busy to type... :uhh:

    Those are some really talented sheep-dogs! I sometimes get out to agility-dog competitions locally, and it seems that the Aussie sheep-dogs have a great rapport with their owners, and take instruction and command readily (way better than children do!). Also they LOVE having tasks to perform, even if it's only climbing barriers, weaving through upright poles, or dashing though tunnels. If you have never been to an agility-dog competition, you must go to one - especially if you can take some kiddies along. They are almost always held outdoors, so I can usually find a vantage-point up-wind of the crowd to take pictures and enjoy the show.

    I particularly liked the Pong simulation.

    BTW, for those who poke fun at sheep-husbandry types, in college at UMO the driver-roadie for our band was a sheep-specialist. We teased him about his "girlfriends", but guess what? By the beginning of his senior year, he had already been recruited. The station paid to move him and his belongings to NZ, and gave him a house to live in, which became his free and clear when he completed his 5-year contract. Jonathan sent us postcards and letters talking about skiing, sunny beaches, and mountain streams teeming with Rainbow trout. It eventually occurred to us stupid engineering types (mostly) who hung out with him that 4 years in Animal Husbandry with a specialization in sheep was not such a stupid career-move.

    Ooh, MIH has even accessorized for this thread. Is she going to join the sheep with that light-up collar? :biggrin:

    I was going to ask something similar yesterday, but failed to render my Polish ideas in English :grumpy:
