Csilla is going herding

Here is a little excerpt from the letter sent by Sandy and Kees about Csilla’s first herding experience:

“I have always wanted to go herding with Poki [Ámor's son] and Csilla, and finally we did… What a rush!! :))
I had no idea what to expect, having no experience with herding at all…

First Csilla. She was “she”… Being with me, barking “cause we’re gonna do some funstuff”…. but she didn’t really get the idea that she should look for the fun stuff herself, with the sheep ;).
Fortunatly, the shepherd gave the exact same reason that I was having.. -> she’s got to build the confidence and learn that it’s ok to go to the sheep and “do her thing”.

Then Poki. I really was interested to see him with the sheep, because he can really focus on his work. After Csilla, the shepherd told me to leave Poki with the sheep loose. So, no penn or leash first. And wow… He saw the sheep, got to them, circled around, and made sure that they were close together. Sometimes a sheep got away, and he went after it. I could see on the shepherd’s face that he really enjoyed to see this small pumi work ;).

Both pumi’s showed that they went for the outside of the flock, and not crazy in the middle pushing them apart. I am sure we will go there again, hopefully some more times, so we can actually get some training and see how things develop. It sure was a rush to see Poki ;)) and it would be fun to manage that a bit more. And for Csilla.. I am sure that she will do good also when she gets her confidence up. I see the same in everything she does. So I hope for “and the story continues… ”
