The farmer had his dog round up the rams and charge straight towards me.....eeek!! A test of my fledgling skills!
Fantastic fun though...and they swerved at the last moment!

What can I say? Thank you all so much for the awards - worth every eye shutting moment!

Fab image. My dogs do that to me and I must admit that I fall to the ground just in case they don't run around me. They are big heavy Ridgebacks and I would come off the worst not them. Excellent nerve kept for taking this image. Well done. Elaine
