With the upcoming litter in a few days, I have placed Jipsey on mandatory maternity leave. We worked calves and one jumped her and landed on her leg. I decided that was too close. So she is staying home now.
She is not taking it very well. A working dog does not enjoy seeing others move cows or load up to go work.
This is her laying on the bed watching the other dogs move calves away from the house. She moved cows the day after she had pups last time. I’m sure she will be ready to go just as soon.
