Catchin' Up - Goodbye to the Lambs

On a fine late spring day, Dave and his sidekick Vader the Kelpie came by to pick up his lambs.  If you've never seen a Kelpie work, it's pretty magical to watch.

Dave and Vader.  The goal - put everyone into the pens in the upper right hand corner and then sort out the lambs from the ewes

Vader convinces them not to bolt for the far end of the pasture

Lining them up near the gate
The horde at the gate - and don't kid yourself, Dave kinda knows what he's doing too

In they go, no muss, no fuss

Loaded and ready to roll home to Molalla
