The Watchful Eye

The Watchful Eye

I admire the way Red keeps a watchful eye on the sheep without disturbing them or moving them unnecessarily. He likes to stay about 50 or 60 feet away, close enough to keep control, far enough to avoid spooking them.

Red and the sheep are very comfortable with one another now, they move together like a ballet, each understanding what the other wants, and I never tire of watching Red do his work. He has the watchful eye.
