Sam and Oakley are two of the most energetic dogs I have ever met.
They need lots of exercise.
They also need a job.
Oakley is the hunter.
He patrols the woods and keeps the predators away.
Because of him, our chickens and ducks have
suffered no attacks this year.
Sam is just starting to develop his farm skills.
Two weeks ago, Sam was a chicken chaser,
and not a trustworthy farm dog.
Now, he is completely safe around the birds.
He's a very good pupil and learns fast.
The past few days he has been helping round up the horses.
Each afternoon, Sam runs around the pasture
chasing the horses back to the barn.
The Bigs are usually the easiest to get moving.
Sam and Oakley stand guard at the gate,
until I get there to close it.
The Littles are a bit tougher.
Coming back to the barn is not their favorite activity.
It usually takes a halter and lead rope to bring them back.
Sam seems to understand this process,
and helps me bring in Red
while I lead Ollie.
Good job, Sam.
I think we found your job!
