This is one of her very first clinics, working cattle on a long line with Diane Sobel Meyer. We were very much working on calm, control and poise.
Once again, we travelled to the Flying Bucket Farm for an amazing clinic with Diane Sobel Meyer. Lots of thinking
I did some work with Ukulele a bit at this clinic. Pretty happy with boosting her confidence and taking commands. She has a really great ability to turn and flank, and is very respectful to moving stock. We are hoping to do a bit more pen work with her
