Cattle Dogs Heading Home in Wild Horse Valley

Late afternoon while traveling along Fields-Denio Road in rural Harney County, OR.

:   :   :

In the shadow of Steens Mountain, these four cattle dogs were out playing along the dirt road in the Wild Horse Valley.

When we passed by, they began heading home in the opposite direction.

My husband was sleeping, while I was enjoying the quiet, peaceful and beautiful views

on the 60 mile drive on this dirt road back to Burns, so I stopped.

:   :   :

Hopping out of the Suburban to catch a shot, I whistled.

I whistled again, they all stopped.

Then one laid down and the other three stood still for a moment looking back at me, for a perfect pose.

They seem poised for a command,

but unfortunately I know nothing about directing these

marvelous working dogs.
