An Australian Blue Heeler goes to sleep on top of the flock it has herded.

And if you are still fascinated about herding, read worthy story in today’s WSJ on Cattle Herders in Australia:ย For Rookie Cowboys, Snakes and Aches Driving Cattle on the Australian Range

  2. Sorry to be a downer but I imagine that the sheep underneath are a little distressed. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ From their point of view they have a predator lying on top of them and no way to escape.

  3. So sweet. I’ve seen video of herding dogs jumping up and running along the backs of sheep they’re herding, but never one taking a snooze. That’s adorable! The original fleece dog bed! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Do other people literally perceive them as blue, then? I always wondered why this coloring was called that, when to me it’s pretty clearly actually a mixture of gray, black and white( albeit the shade of gray that might be described as having a blue undertone). Also, is it allowed to share this picture? It’s adorable and they are one of my favorite breeds( my current dog is a mix of this with Catahoula).
