Sheep Dogs, Grade 2

My husband and I traveled to Meeker, Colorado again last September to watch the Sheep Dog Trials. Like in the movie "Babe" a handler uses a border collie to herd and maneuver sheep for a competition. I love to watch these dogs work. It is a fun event with booths and food venders. At one vender I found this neat book about Floss the dog who learns to work on a ranch.

I also found a hand painted greeting card by Emma Horne featuring 2 sheep dogs in a mountain setting.

Here is a first try at a guided drawing by one of the second graders.

A second graders paints with watercolors.
Stay tuned for the final copy.
