Even though our cattle are 'dog-tick' fat, and don't need us to give them groceries, we still call them up and feed them from time to time because it's a handy way to count heads, check for new babies, look for injuries or illness, and keep them tame. 

Most ranchers have some kind of siren mounted on their truck to call cattle up out of the forest. Other Half has one of these sirens too but I never have to use it because I have my own cattle call. So what is this call which is guaranteed to have cows running out of the woods like third graders racing to the cafeteria?

 "It's that loud-mouthed black & white dawg!"

Yes, from the time we leave the cabin, Lily barks her silly head off as we drive down the road to feed the cattle. Her barks bounce off the trees and echo across the pasture, never failing to call up greedy hippo-hiney cattle.

"You're welcome. This is just one more service offered from Barbed Wire Border Collies, Inc."

Lily sure earns her keep! How are all the other dogs doing? I miss seeing pictures of Ice - she is still my favorite!

Miss Lily is a talented farm hand, isn't she! and much cuter than an air horn!
