Breaking in a new sheepdog

 Chris has a new, young sheepdog called Ron.  
He came almost fully trained but both man and dog have to get used to each other
so Chris has him out twice a day working with a small group of sheep.

Ron has to learn when to drive the sheep forward 
and when listen and wait for the next command.

He'd doing well.  He's strong and keen and fast and
should make a good fell dog.

A Bird's Eye View of the Buttertubs Pass

Beautiful views towards Swaledale from the snow capped Buttertubs today.  These guys handgliding had the best views of all.
