Gave the peach trees some culling so the fruit will be less plentiful but bigger. Picked some apricots, lemons and the last of the Tango Tangerines while I was at it. Fave apricot recipes anyone?

1/2 brother to my Neo!

Introducing our new livestock guardian, Neo. He and his brothers and mama came to live with us when he was two weeks old. We have loved raising him and his brothers these past 4 months. His siblings went to their new homes yesterday. Neo is taking the change in stride. He hangs out with our two other Italian Sheepdogs, trying to be a big dog now. :-)

It’s been a busy month! Puppies, baby lambs, lots of chicks! The good news is that little Pink Dots has fully recovered from her broken leg, and after a month of rehab, is reunited with her sisters next to the chickens. She will be off to her new farm home next month.

Little Pink Dots got a warm welcome from her Aunt and Uncle on a little excursion today. Getting around on the cast just fine, thank you. But she has to spend most of her time in a small pen or crate 😩 for the next several weeks.

Bravia guards the lambs

The perfect guardian for lambs! Bravia demonstrates the proper respect and distance at 18 months old.

Maremmas at work.

This is a wonderful example of Maremma’s ability to ascertain intent and respond appropriately. This coyote (hi Ralph!) is just passing through so the the Maremmas (hi Sam!) give a few warning barks and then sit watching while it decides this is the wrong place for a meal and walks away. (The Ralph and Sam references are for Bugs Bunny fans). Now this coyote is one of a pack of about 6 and there are 2-3 packs that size in my area and pups are starting to leave the den… so he was definitely checking out the lambs about 30 feet away.

One of the traits I value most about this breed is this ability to respond to the situation and the predator’s intent. They don’t have to bark for an hour… not even for a minute. They get their message across with their tails up and a few deep barks.

I think the vet may have put her back together wrong! 😆😆😆 This is little Pink Puppy, who jumped in front of mama as mama was jumping in the puppy pen, and her tibia was fractured by accident. She has a cute little cast and boot and is an indoor pup for a while. She is demonstrating here the innate Maremma ability to sleep like they have no joints, and I can’t tell where her limbs attach and the little cast/boot makes her look like her surgery went WAY wrong. No worries! She is comfy and fine, and on some good meds, too!

I’m excited to announce that I have been elected President of the Maremma Sheepdog Club of America! I am so grateful to join this amazing Board of Directors: Catherine Sorensen - VP; Alison Charter-Smith - Recording Secretary; Colleen Williams - Corresponding Secretary; Kara Marx - Treasurer; and Members at Large: Elizabeth Brockman; Barbara Blankenship; Joseph Greenleaf; and Karen O’Brian Maynard.

We all will work together to make the MSCA a club that Maremma owners WANT to join - full of education, mentorship, advice and information on our amazing breed, the Maremma Sheepdog.

I’d love your feedback on what you’d like from the club in order to increase its value to you and your Maremma(s).
