Blue figured out herding Babe & Rosie after a month of him & me walking to the back pasture and herding them to the barn. I waited till he was 6 months old. I didn't let him go by himself for another couple of months. But I didn't use language or signs. We just walked to get them and walked them to the barn.
He was about a year before he finally took off by himself. I waited to see what would happen. By golly he brought them home.
I was such a proud Mommy. 8-)
And so they all have figured it out but for Charlie. It took close to 4 years for him to "get me" I guess you could say.
But boy when got it, he got all of it. Lolol
And keeps getting it.
It's amazing how I suddenly realize he has made a giant leap of some kind all on his own.
Like the ball in the tree. A real wham of Wow!
