I worked at Careg-Wiber for five years. I am hopeful that the pictures on that page will bring to life what a day's work can be. Each farm's work can be different. Although you will see hills in my photographs, the area at Careg-Wiber is not nearly as remote and difficult to work as those mountainous areas pictured on the Wales' page.

I also have performed demonstrations for various individuals from time to time. On the "Demos" page, you will see me working Pam on a few Suffolk crosses.

I took some pictures of the area near where I now live. The photos are on the "Farmland" page.

This Beardie, C.J. had some issues that needed correcting while in Phoenix, Arizona, in 2003. He was a hard headed Beardie that just wanted to work, work, work. He often took advantage of his owner-handler. For some reason, he became quite attached to me.

 
       
 

When I returned to Phoenix in 2005, he knocked me over with affection when he saw me. One of his owners just happened to have a camera in hand and snapped this picture. She indicated he never made over anyone the way he responded to me. I believe he had respect for me. That respect is so important when working; respect runs both ways.

 
       
 

I was asked by the owner of an Australian Shepherd named Austin to try and solve a particular problem he was having (2003). We quickly solved the problem. I have to say it was HOT HOT HOT in the desert, even though this was their fall-winter months.

 
       
 

Working comes in many forms. Here I was moving stock from a holding area into the arena for an ASCA trial in Phoenix, Arizona. I met many individuals who said they really appreciated my handling of the stock. The judge commented that the stock was kept very calm which allowed the dogs to have a chance at better runs.
