I believe that he is just folowing his instincts but when he was younger the owners daughter played games with him in the arena. I think that may be the reason that its such a hard habit for him to break now.
Blue is so bad about it because when Blue and Fancy were there, fancy got hit by a car though, anyway when they were the only two dogs besides the Boxers, Nelly taught then to herd the horses and now they think its the most fun thing int he word. Fancy got hit by a car though but Blue is terrible about it.
