Some folks we know inherited a year-old male collie that they did not want. We had been thinking of getting a livestock guardian dog for while now, what the coyotes moving into the county and all, so this seemed like a good fit. Roy is nice, and smart, but has had little-to-no training, so we have our work cut out for us. We have him in a fenced-off portion of the goat shed for now, so everybody can get used to one another — in the pic below that’s him, with Glory munching down on hay nearby. We hope to get him to live with the goats soon, but for now we go on walks with him through the pastures several times a day.
