Trixie Mae, Cow Dog

When we got home tonight, these little Yay-Hoos and their Mommas were walking around my yard.  Somehow one of the gates to the yard had been left open, and they were making themselves at home.I did not want them pooping all over my yard, so I headed outside to herd them back through the gate.  This is not as easy as it sounds.  I took my dog with me, and I wasn't so sure if that was a good idea or not... Trixie looked like this when she was a puppy, and she was  WILD.
Trixie immediately knew what to do.  She barked and tried to "show" me where they were.  We went slowly around them, and her instincts took over.  She knew how to herd the cows!!!!  We walked them back through the gate together, and put them back in the pasture.
