I saw this today, fook Planet of The Apes. This is genuinely scary, I bet not one Kebab man showed his face, worse than Shaun of the Sheep.

Just got around to watching that video Dave, that Ram is metal, strange that it had a go pro on it back though.

Might interest you Dave. :grin:

Times they are certainly "changing", look at this from "Down-Under". :eek:

Al here much prefers the classic working border collie, some are "as bright as a button"!

Not surprisingly I've seen that! :laughs:

I reckon that clip is just for show. It'll never replace a collie because it can't think and doesn't have herding emebed in its 'brain'.

I'd like to see it deal with a belligerent tup that'll only respond to a nip on the nose. :wink:

I've not been to sheep country since Covid kicked in, there haven't been any shows or dog trials, and onlookers are banned from auctions.

The big sales are in full swing this month too. :cry:

Local sheep are thin on the ground.

That sheep was having a good stare. They do sometimes. :laughs:

Bloody sheep. They're in a field of fodder beet and they're eating weeds!

Aye. Costs more to send it to British Wool than they get paid for it.

Lucky to find some wintering sheep within walking distance. These Zwartbles and Blue Texels are pretty tame. They even let me scratch their noses! :smile:

Lockdown 2 has stopped even vendors staying at the marts after they've dropped their stock off. Can't even leave their vehicles to pen the animals. Drop and go. Buyers only, and they have to book in in advance. Sheep dog trials all cancelled again too. :cry:
