Livestock guard dogs were found in a sweep of cultures from southern Europe through Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and central Asia. They worked in the company of shepherds who often spent weeks on high summer pasture or on long migratory routes.
Born last night. The tiniest heifer. Rotokawa/American Milking Devon cross. Just before bed I went out to call on the dogs and heard one barking from the barn only to find her in the wet puddle her mother had chosen as a birthing suite. Both are dry and bonding in the stables. This is a 'D' year for names meaning a Doris or Dudette...any suggestions for naming this little half pint? by longestacresfarm
