Here's the latest addition to Providence Farm. For those of you who aren't on Facebook, this is Jack, the new Border Collie.
It took four long years, but finally, my prayer for a free working Border Collie has been answered.
Danny loves this guy. I probably should have broken down ages ago and gotten him a "boughten" puppy, but the urge just wasn't there for me, since five dogs already live here.
We could tell immediately that Jack has instinct. He's already starting on the sheep, and he's learning quickly. The only problem is I have to dig out all my old training info. I've forgotten how to train a sheepdog!
Jack missed his family the first night, but with all of the new friends and new sights, he's too busy to mourn too much.


  1. Beautiful addition and working too! Jack looks like he will be a great addition to your farm!

  2. Can someone with a dictionary tell me what "boughten" means.
