sheepish shots : sheep dog makes a splash

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 14 September 2010 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

San Ramon, CA ~ at the sheep farm, Forest Hill Farms

The sheep herding dogs at the farm frequently stopped their play to jump into a water-filled metal tub. When one jumped in, the others rushed over to make sure they got their turn. Then they'd shake off and return to making mad dashes around the barnyard.
