Taz went first and I was able to get him circling the group pretty well after a minute or so of wild chasing. He was very eager and not able to be shut down at all. When I finally grabbed the rope he still wanted more.
Stormy went a couple of days later and he was even more intense than his brother. He didn't notice I was out there in the pen any more, he just wanted SHEEP! I finally grabbed the rope and made him walk around next to me for about 20 minutes, before he started giving to my pressure. Then I turned him loose and he was wonderful- he moved off me, he circled the group, he wasn't running into the middle of the sheep any more. He also did not want to quit when I was ready to stop and had to be dragged out.
I managed to get a couple of pictures of him in between when I tied him to the fence to catch my breath.
He is one eager pup!
