The puppies are now 10 days old and are growing well. Jipsey is doing a wonderful job keeping them all fed and happy.
She was very anxious to get back to cow work and went out moving cows 24 hours after giving birth. I kept it short, but she was so happy. Since then it is a daily break to go out feeding after breakfast and then out in the evening to move the cows off the flat and back down to the meadow.
This is the sire. He is a very attentive and aggressive border collie. He is 9 years old and has slowed down since he broke his leg in the fall of 2012. However he likes to trail cows from the back of the four wheeler, where he has the option to work a little and ride a little.
This is the Dam – Jipsey. She is 19 months old and is getting better everyday. She has been working on cattle since 10 weeks. She has a lot of go and is learning the commands easily. We have been to a clinic to help train me, and she did well. As soon as the pups are bigger, I hope to begin more avid training. She is aggressive and will work all day.
