New Guardian on Patrol


Guardian animals play a very important role on our farm. With predators aplenty here we are continually evaluating and updating our defenses against bobcats, coyotes, owls, hawks and any other possible unseen dangers.

Several months ago we had the unfortunate need to relieve on of our Anatolians from her duties here on the farm. While she was initially a good guard for our flock, over timeDinah learned she could jump the fences. It was aggravating to see her daily anywhere but near the sheep. The final straw was broken when she tore into the chicken coop and ate a favorite hen. We made arrangements to give her to a friend and have been short a guard dog ever since.

Rusty the Guard DogWe finally resolved the issue yesterday when we picked up a new dog from our friends at M Bar W White Dorpers. His name is Rusty and he’s a Pyrenese/Anatolian Sheperd mix. Introducing a new animal to the farm can be a challenge, but Rusty is already on the job.
