With so many grooms each day, the skill didn't take long to master.
I never ever spoke of this connection I had, not with anyone. But I practiced it daily.

When we bought the farm in 2009, I decided to try the same energy identifying techniques with the other farm critters. The following winter when we bought our first little flock of sheep, I knew that was going to be a challenge. Their energy is so much different. But still it's energy and I just had to tune myself into it. The dogs however all have the same energy, some it's tucked behind other needs but it can be drawn out. It's there, just waiting to be discovered.
The very year we bought the farm, we acquired 2 livestock guardian dogs. And just like the grooming and the Lhasa venture, little could I have imagined what this new adventure would entail.
