Smudge shows great guardian nature and rules
She lacks prey drive but this does not
inhibit her capacity as a herder. She commands the respect of the beef and dairy cattle that she lives with.
She is alert to escapees and returns them to their proper pen.
She does not grip at all but uses dominance postures and seldom
barks. Smudge loves the babies and the mothers generally
allow Smudge to lick and nuzzle them. Smudge is very
loving and capable with people and stock.
