Stealth dog, stealth sheep

For Maisie, herding sheep in the snow is like herding boats in the ocean: half of your energy is wasted on treading water. Or plunging through snow banks, in this case.

But moving our little herd is a matter of necessity. Because those dopey sheep tamp down a tiny patch in the snow and refuse to move. Even when food and water is just 10 feet away, the sheep will not wade through the snow. Not without a little canine persuasion.
