Our Working "Farm Dog"

Although Blaeja has not yet had any formal training or herding
tests, true to her heritage, she is a "working dog" here at home
where she has exhibited an uncanny instinctual "knowing" of
what is needed with our livestock.
Blaeja often helps bring in or send out our small Icelandic Sheep
flock, helps to keep our neighbors calves, who have a tendency to
blow right through our boundary fence to come over and nibble
our horses hay, out of our fields.
She also shows a desire to help with our horses, although this
"help" can sometimes be a hindrance, as I worry about her getting
kicked or stepped on. Blaeja intuitively "knows" when the horses
are misbehaving while working in the round pen or on a lunge
line, when a horse kicks out or bucks,
she is at it's heels barking saying "no, no, no"!
When Blaeja was about 10-11 months old we had a maiden mare due to foal, but not for
another 3 weeks. We arrived home very late one unseasonably cold June night after a
long day of errands to find our anticipated foal, several weeks early, freezing cold &
almost dead in a cold mud puddle rather than with her mom in the dry,
covered portion of the paddock.
An emergency vet visit was in order & the mare & filly stayed at the vets (in his heated
barn due to such strange cold June temperatures) receiving intensive care, IV fluids,
& antibiotics for several days.
When the filly finally came home, it was still quite cold, even in the covered portion of our
barn, which we put her & her dam in. We had no foal blankets that small & could not find
any on short notice in June, so we cut a fleece blanket to keep wrapped around the filly,
closed in her section of our barn as best we could to guard against any drafts, filled her
stall with deep shavings, & hoped & prayed she would make it.
The filly was nestled into her fluffy bed of pine shavings & fleece blankets getting some
much needed rest & her mom was quietly munching hay. I was watching from the corner,
reflecting on the foals chances when Blaeja nosed her head under the stall door right by
the mommas nose. She wriggled her way all the way in &, after nuzzling the mares
nostrils, eyes, & ears, she sat up on her hind legs as if begging.
The mare went back to her hay and Blaeja immediately came nuzzling over into the warm
ball of fleece, velvet, and pine that our little black filly was; licked her nostrils, cleaned her
eyes, & snuggled up right next to her & would not leave her for anything. The mare never
flicked an ear. She actually seemed to know Blaeja meant no harm and only to help.
The foal, did make a full recovery. Blaeja hardly left her side until she was well, frisky, &
active like a normal healthy foal. They maintained a special bond until the filly
was weaned & sold.
Blaeja remains a lover of horses, often standing up on her hind legs "begging" while she
wriggles and eagerly waits for the horse to nuzzle her. I will never forget the close bond
she developed with our little miracle filly, such an example of the excellent temperament,
instinct, and intuition in this wonderful breed!
