Mace is an excellent herding dog.  He gathers naturally but has learned to drive effectively.  He heels low and consequently ducks to avoid the kick.   He will also use a bossy dominant bark in the face to tell the stock what to do.  When the other resident dog attacked the new sheep, Mace was right in there to tell the dog to BACK OFF!  He knows his stock and will protect them.  He works cattle and sheep with authority but is gentle with the poultry.
He observes predatory birds and chases them away.  He regularly patrols and hunts for rodents.  With few trees, Mace has cornered prey and stood barking.  Mace is a fairly soft dog but is not afraid to voice his own opinions.  He is very friendly with people he knows, but he can be disconcerting until he knows the stranger.
