Thank yall good to see all yall too :) Tasman is a good pup still mentally growing lol... Ratmir is still giving him puppy pass and at this time Tasman is giving Ratmir the adult respect. Wont know the final outcome on how they end up as two intact males (as far as my book of thinking) until Tasman is 4 years old. The things I have had to ask Ratmir to (try to accept living in a close multiple dog home) Love him dearly for working with me on those situations that though he may not agree, he hears me and responds to let me handle it. :) They don't live in the same space, always a barrier, baby gate. It's nice that all of them have access to the house and me ... And Ratmir is happy with how it works and has been so graceful when Tasman does his escape artist stuff and I walk out the door to find Ratmir ,Tasman in the same space and they figured it out with grace... I pause , smile and then move Tasman along back to his area :)

not a lot of snow with the temperatures being so bitter cold and dry... Morning chores getting breakfast. Feed the dogs separate first before we start feeding the other animals

Heard Tasman roaring and charging across the yard the other day , looked out and he was racing towards the goats. Then sat to block them from coming back to my ground water tanks. When I was spending time outside with them for training. I always shoo and lead the goats away from the underground water tanks, they have lids on them. Didn't want the goats to get into a habit of jumping on them for safety reasons. Guess Tasman was watching me, and decided to keep the goats away himself since I wasn't there. :)

4 stray dogs (neighbors Pyrenees) finally expanding their open range roaming down to our property. This was Tasmans response.


Am very proud of him, after that first fence line hit even though there was a fence and 4 of them the pyrenees backed off and retreated to stay back across the road in the other neighbors property to continue their barking at Tasman. The sudden drop heads and turn trotting away back North I do think they were called away for how they left. The pyrenees had been lurking and menacing in the area for about 2 hours. I had kept everyone in the fenced in areas up at the house until the pyrenees seem to leave chasing wildlife, thought they were gone.. As soon a I let the dog and goats out to the pasture area the pyrenees ran back to our property. Alway be thankful for spending the time and money on the perimeter 6 ft field fencing. Watching the pyrenees walk up and down our fence line along the road looking for a way in since my dogs were further back on the property.


This was on our way back to the barn after the pyrenees had left. Tasman making sure the pyrenees are gone. Abhik is there too, the goats flock around her in time of trouble, they were staying right with her and Abhik was keeping pace with me .. Wasn't able to get her in the video except her tail lol... She good too. Am happy that the goats have bonded to them..



sad for the pyrenees I have seen them starting in puppy hood away from their property further up north, later a little older near the interstate and now over 2 miles south from their home down at our property.. They should be a year old or a little older now.. such a bad habit to have in the guardian breeds chasing wildlife and at time seen them running the open range cattle. I really didn't like the way they were going back and forth in front of our property looking for away in...

Good dogs doing their jobs!

Though don't you think the pyrs were thinking, "You guys have such a lovely life can we live here too?" :D

I think your fence just paid for it self, keeping the four stray dogs out.
If they had gotten in, your dogs would have protected the goats for sure, but there
would have been injuries.
Is it your open range cattle they are chasing?

yes is alway interesting learning a new breed,, if they had been GSD's they be on the fence, fence fighting... but Tasman hit the fence line so hard right at them that they jumped back and stay'd back keeping a huge gap distance, and kept barking. Abhik and Taman were mart enough to eventually just stand there standing their ground only reacting if any of them came out of the other property to approach the road. Being with my guy you get use to their size until you see them next to another dog and realize the difference. And these would young very thin and not even sure if they were well bred or just lacking for food for how thin they were.

No they are not my open cattle,, lot of the individuals in this old ranch now cut up into individual parcels, work overseeing the open range cattle for the owner. If there i a problem the owner will be informed about it. I see dog like this come and go so quickly, maybe they make it to their second year but never seen any long term dogs in this area. Something alway happen to them.. At one time there wa a household that was breeding them, had them in a fenced area and was selling them for experienced working LGD's because he had them in a fence inclosure where cows grazed around them.? And there i still a local posting for selling experienced working pyrs for livestock out of this area??? which is awful if the dog will look to expand and wonder ...

Don't know,, am thankful for the money spent on the fence.. Agree would not of matter'd who would win in a dog fight.. the expense of injury will never be worth it. The wild life just goes around with no intent of messing with our property because of the fencing and the dogs .. loose dogs are the #1 threat and danger to other peoples animals
