A single well trained BC is too much for most farms. They need a job. That can be agility events, hours on end Frisbee catching, eliminating geese from an airport or community park or herding a flock of sheep.
An untrained BC is a pest on every farm or back yard.
Two untrained BC puppies are a disaster. BC will herd sheep, cattle, horses, ducks, children, joggers. They are intense. Any fast object is exciting. The snow off a shovel, a rabbit or a flock of chickens. Without the command "stay", expect disaster.
Their instinct is to group animals and move them towards you.
Wrong breed, wrong job, wrong plan. I don't see a happy ending here.
