The Endlessly Fascinating Maisie


Last night, as I did the final barn check, Hank started barking out behind the barn.  Maisie immediately jumped up to go see a. what was going on b. if Hank needed help c. if she needed to relay a message to the rest of the sheep d.....  I'm not exactly sure.  

What I do know is no one else consistently watches out the back of the barn like she does.  No one else jumps up and goes running to see what is going on when Hank barks.  I'm not sure if she's just a busy body or if she is part of the protection team or is just Hank's friend and is worried about him or...

What I do believe is she understands something more about Hank's relationship to the flock than I think anyone else does.  And I find that crazy sheep endlessly fascinating.

Animal relationships are really a unique world that we can only imagine. I do know there is more going on than less between them!

I suspect she thinks she's also a guardian dog just like Hank.

Another example of my question, "Who needs TV???"

Maisie definitely has special needs. But she also has special gifts. Some of those gifts try the patience of the shepherdess of Equinox Farm, to be sure! Ah, but you love her.

She *would* make a great Tour de Fleece mascot! Challenging. Unpredictable. Amusing. Ornery. Vexing. Awesome.
