Jill was quite a handful when she was young but even then she was lovable and had a mischievous streak in her that appealed to me. She had a lovely style on her with sheep. Jill has done part of the lambing but I find her best at holding ewes to check or taking whole mobs out, she is not good at sorting just a few and leaving some. She has had 2 litters of pups and is a great mum until they are about 3 weeks old when boredom must sets in. This time when she had pups, I would take her out at about 3pm each day and taught her to go over 4 jump and do fly ball, she needed the mental stimulation. She is a bitch that needs work every day. I have been using Jill for our lambing here (2009 season), she is handling it way better this year than 12 months ago, I think a bit more age on her has helped. She can even draft out ewes & lambs from a mob of sheep now and is thinking more of what I want. It has taken us time to get a balance, especially for lambing work which I require a dog to think what they are doing and come in directly when told. 2010 Update: I will keep using Jill to compete in Tux yard trials & show trials when time allows, she is settling down with more age. She won Helensville open show trial 2011. We still have a play with flygility but haven't competed yet. Jill also gets a chance to go to the odd agility show and has a few ribbons now. Jill litter to Astra Sky. Jill's Litter 7 pups born 5/6/13 Jill is enjoying her life working large mobs of goats.
