Hello, it's me again with another question about my pyr I have been reading all the other LGD posts and I think there are some on here now that can answer my question. We have a female pyr that is 15mo old. She has been really wonderful BUT...(you knew that was coming huh?) she does want to play with the babies. AND we did have a very destructive ram that thought it was fun to entice her to "play" so today I saw her trying to "play" with my ewes. What do I do about these two problems??? First of all you need to know that I began all wrong and she was in the house her first several months after we got her. Then when she went outside she decided to sleep on the back porch no matter how many times we put her into the sheep fence she would find a way out. She does a FANTASTIC job keeping the coyotes away (TONS of those near our farm, they howl every night) and has even chased a bobcat out of the sheep fence. Just recently she has begun to sleep next to the gate of the corral we have around our sheep shed, keeping all the sheep inside and everything away from them as the coyotes has been really persistant lately. One night she stayed up barking around the perimiter in a freezing rain for over two hours. She had icicles hanging off her the next morning and in a few days a good respiratory infection. So....we really do love our pyr, but having started out all wrong, what can we do to help her out? I know she is very smart b/c she does things we never thought of her doing. She knows how to separate and herd! How's that? We got a few new goats and then decided to do take the kids from the nanny after having already put them in with our other goats. We just said, help us out Snobelle, and she herded the new ones into the barn! Couldn't believe it! PS...the one raising the anatolian mixes, what is your website again??? I am interested in crossing the breeds as I have heard so much good about it and I am keeping a female and doing her the right way....in with the sheep and goats IMEDIATELY!
