Ugh, yes, if you get a Aussie, be prepared for it to find a neighbors cows, or horses, and herd them -_- We have one Aussie (the rest are now to old) Who goes over to a neighbors, and all naturallly (its truly amazing to watch) herds ALL the cows in the pasture to one big group... But the neighbors don't enjoy it... -_-
