I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say again! I’m one of those people who looooooves winter. ❤️❄️we had a beautiful snow last weekend and now this week we are back up in the 50’s and 60’s and I’m like 😑. But I’m pretty sure I am the only person in 100 square miles who feels this way. 🤷🏼‍♀️ maybe? Help me out here winter people. 🙌🏻👏🏻❄️☃️💙 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Also, have you met Rhona? She is the cutest floof this side of the Absaroka Mountains and I swear is gaining pounds by the day. She’s the perfect buddy for hitting some #tuesdaytrails ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #greatpyr #greatpyrenees #pyreneesofinstagram #livestockguardiandog #LGD #livestockguardian #farmdog #puppy #puppiesofig #puppiesofinsta #pyrenees #doglover #montana #montanamoment #hikingwithdogs #outdoors #outdoorwomen #alpinebabes #bigdogs

Brushing this gentle giant is quite a therapeutic job. Clyde loves being touched and brushed. He flops down to the ground and when I stop for just a second to clean out the brush, he nudges me with his paw letting me know to keep going. Since Gunther and Leonard took over Clydes' job protecting the sheep, Clyde moved in with the ducks and he seems to really enjoy his new surroundings - closer to us humans and a few more days out running around with Clarence and Humphrey. . . . #thymeagaingardens #farmlife #organicfarming #sheepdog #livestockguardian #dogswithjobs #workingdogs #guarddog #protecttheflock #maremma #predatorcontrol #dogsofinstagram

Meet Luna. She’s the newest face on the ranch, bringing the dog population to 7😂. She’s so cute, it’s killing me to not spend all day with her. She’s Laney’s shadow and will be her sidekick and eventual replacement. We’re pretty smitten, but are trying not to spoil her, as she has a very serious job to attend to! 🐑

Please educate yourself and other before being judgmental towards ones who still preserve the working traits and qualities of working class breeds of dogs. Not all breeds are created equal nor is every working situation out of character and breed standard for many of our working dogs. Allow working class breed dogs to do the job they were bred for many generations to handle with great stride often with great pride. #workingdogs #livestockguardian #livestockguardiandog #centralasianshepherd #alabai #workingdogsofig #workingdogsofinstagram #purebred #purebreddogs #dawnlandwolfhounds

Catching up... #gettoknowahomesteader October #scavengerhunt Day 8: A four legged animal. This is Jasper, a BLM burro who is my version of a Livestock Guardian. He’s a beautiful, sweet boy that will gladly stomp a predator to bits! You don’t mess with his ‘herd’! Swipe to see his ‘incoming’ photo... untamed, never handled, yet still beautiful and curious 💕. #blmburro #blmburrosofinstagram #handsomeboy #best125dollars #livestockguardian #homesteadlife #homesteadmisfits

Even if I‘m half Croatian, my dog is 100 %. I did not know this fact in the beginning when I saw him first in the animal shelter, but we got a connection to each other promptly. And of course, we‘re speaking the same language ^^ But he has to learn German tho. ... And of course we were so happy that the Croatian national soccer team were so super great!! #wm2018 #hund #dog #pas #šarplaninac #šarplaninacmix #dogsofinstagram #igdogs #instadog #dogmum #herdenschutzhund #herdenschutzhundmix #livestockguardian #livestockguardiandog #livestockguardianmix #lgd #lgdmix #kroate #croatian #hrvatski #hrvatskipas #doggo #goodboi

Boone’s like “Maybe polar bears are like T-Rex. If I don’t move, then she won’t know I’m here” 😂 This weekend when I was burning brush in the goat pasture I let Boone in for his first interaction with Annie (without having fence between them). She was amazing with him! No surprise there, and I know they are going to be great friends. I don’t know what I would do without her, and as @the_henry_hens said to me “Annie is too pure for this world” 🐶🐶 #farmdogs #farmdogsofinstagram #livestockguardiandog #livestockguardian #maremmasheepdog #chesapeakebayretriever #boonethesidekick #anniebear #polarbeardog #instagramhomesteaders #modernhomesteading #smallfarmlife

Our Luna, Maremmano-Abruzzese Sheepdog. Calm, controlled, independent, powerful and protective. Sometimes sensitive and always acutely alert to changing situations, responding to threats with judicious warnings and swift courageous action if necessary. A fearless protector and excellent guardian of livestock and humans alike......when she’s awake and feels like working. 😂 In her defence I heard her ‘working’ all night long. Love this girl. 😍 #fearless #onguard #alert #protector #nothingwillgetpast #maremma #maremmaabruzzi #maremmarescuevictoria #livestockguardian #lgd #instadaily #adoptadog #lilacres

Had myself a nice little weekend vacay in the burbs. So many different smells and sounds there and I love it! Thanks to my grandparents for spoiling me with treats and pets! Back to reality today!

Hilda Jean is working hard on growing what looks to be a large litter. She’s going out with a bang. We will be “retiring” her after this litter. The pups will be Great Pyrenees X Anatolian Shepherd. I’m sure they will make great livestock guardians! #GreatPyrenees #AnatolianShephers #LiveStockGuardian #LGD

We never fully appreciated the value of a livestock guardian until we finally got one. At 3 years old, Sara is a great protector and a loyal friend. She’s also Batman’s girlfriend in case you didn’t know, and she’s working full time to train her protégée, Bruce! She plays a huge role at Elderwood Farms, and we couldn’t imagine a day without her! #elderwoodfarms #elwd #alpaca #alpacafarm #alpacas #livestock #livestockguardiandog #livestockguardian #greatpyrenees #farm #farming

If you want something bad enough and you believe in yourself, you can make it happen. I’m not supposed to be on the couch, but look at me tonight. I even convinced my mom to snuggle with me here. #winning

We went to go pick out our livestock guardian dog today!!! Such cute puppies!!😍 but our final pick was this gorgeous little girl. Meet Elizabeth!! Lizzy for short! We wanted a royal name to go along with our royal goats she’ll be protecting(my herd name is Ruby’s Royals Dairy Goats) so she’s named after Queen Elizabeth of course!❤️ She’s so adorable, a little shy at first but nice and laid back like her dad, and already a watchful little thing at just 5 weeks or so old. She’s half Akbash and half Anatolian Shepherd. Her parents are awesome dogs and I can’t wait to bring her home to the homestead!! The coyotes finally found our free range flock the past few months so we’ve lost a good piece of our flock, hopefully little Lizzy will help with that problem and keep any other unwanted visitors off our property!❤️ #LGD #livestockguardian #livestockguardiandog #puppy #cutepuppy #newdog #royal #sweet #sweetthing #adorable #guardian #guarddog #anatolianshepherd #akbash homestead #homesteader #homesteading
