© Copyright 2008 FarmgirlFare.com, the award-winning blog where we find non-stop, all night, coyote-scaring barking to be sweeter than the sweetest lullaby that sends us off into a deep and peaceful sleep each time we hear it—but it's probably a good thing that our nearest neighbors are several miles away.


  1. Is it the photo or is she really as big as the sheep? Did you keep both sheepdogs?
    As always I am fascinated by your stories of farm life....

  2. I assume that the new dogs are effective coyote-deterrents, then?

  3. Hi
    I usually onle lerk in the shadows but i just had to put in a comment to day.
    i read the little bit you wrote under the picture and thought,I don't see a dog. then i realized that she/he are the same dang color as the sheep. LOL ( looks just like a sheep but with a tail LOL) did you intend to do that ?? if so good idea --good way to fool those old coyotes,they probable think easy pickings and boom they get a big surprise! lol

    I do like your blog. I would lov to live somewhere like that!please kee[ taking pictures and posting them.!!
    thanks from sunny Florida

  4. Dadgum good sheepdawg you have now! Amazing how goofy fluffy puppies grow up to do their job. Woo Hoo Marta ( and your cohort!) Yes it is good your neighbors are a bit away - we have someone about 1/4 mile from us with the yappingest dog in the world - I think their dog barks at wind in the leaves!

  5. Olá

    Que cães maravilhosos,sou apaixonada por estes animais tão amigos dos seres humanos.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.
