We moved on to herding. The duck course was set up so Grace practiced with ducks first. She works on a long line or Linda would be minus ducks. A couple of times Grace dove and came up with a few feathers in her mouth.

Both Linda and I were really pleased with her performance. However, it will be several more months before she will be ready to enter the herding trials at the next level.

I went home and started clearing the fenceline so fence bottom reinforcement can be installed. Once installed Grace should be able to stay out in the yard loose and not require be securing in the much smaller kennel run. Tracey came over with tools and joined in the fenceline clearing. With her help we managed to clear the entire remainder of the fenceline. Our effort was a huge accomplishment. The fenceline is ready for reinforcement. The pictures don't really do justice to our hard work. THANK YOU TRACEY FOR ALL THE HELP!
