Dogs Working Cattle - A Beautiful Sight

Elder Son sent me a link to some photographs taken by Craig Kelley of Not So Serious Productions.  These photographs are amazing, of the cowboys gathering cattle, the cowboys and horses working together, and the dogs doing what they are bred to do - their jobs.  It is nothing less than an intricate dance, and beautiful, at that.

If you’ll get to page 5, the photos of the actual cattle works will start, and in there, you’ll see some awesome pictures of Elder Son and his baby Australian Shepherd pup, Hud*.  
ThatManILove and I have watched this slideshow over and over - there is nothing more beautiful than seeing a dog, doing what he’s been bred to do.  
This little fellow is 6-7 months old, and watch him work.  He’s one happy pup.

*Update:  Friday night, my son's wonderful Hud was tragically killed. Our son is heartbroken, as are we.
