Accomplishments in herding:
Baxi started his first herding lesson when he was 6 months old. After 4 lessons we took a winter break and returned in the spring. Then we took a seminar with the same instructor. I returned to herding the following year after
our instructor had offered to handle Baxi.
In spring 2017, Baxi's handler tells me that he is a pleasure to work with. From the start Baxi showed excellent problem solving skills;
now Baxi also displays a good understanding of most of the jobs in the take pens as well as around the shutes. He is defitely better at fetching sheep than driving - he simply seems to find it more interesting.
Late 2019/early 2020 I have had to withdraw Baxi from herding due to an old injury that recurs every time we herd. I definitely miss watching Baxi herd, and I am certain that he misses it after we visited and he instantly focused on the pens.
